The Blue-Cooking model looks to utilize electricity generated from floating solar energy panels integrated into aquaculture farms in order to enable the spread of clean cooking (using electric cookstoves rather than solid fuels). Initially focusing on three communities in Bangladesh, the project will work with aquaculture farmers to understand the barriers and benefits of floating solar system integration, including mechanisms to improve income and farming yield. The project will also work with women to understand socio-economic barriers and benefits to the adoption of clean cooking, in addition to transitioning to new technologies and wider health improvements.
