Full Life-cycle Trial Periods as a Way to Stimulate the Adoption of more Efficient Bioenergy Technologies in Rural Senegal

Abstract

This study investigates whether willingness to pay for improved cookstoves, and ultimately their acceptance, is increased by prior experience of use. The research is based on anexperiment conducted among a sample of households that participated in a randomized controlled trial (RCT) in 2009 and 2010, located in a rural intervention region of GIZ in Senegal. The Becker-DeGroot-Marschak method was used, coupled with a real purchase offer, to determine households' willingness to pay in an unbiased manner. A complementary household survey was conducted to investigate, among other things, how households make decisions regarding the choice of modern energy options.
