UP Energy

Up Energy is currently executing two projects in Uganda: a registered Gold Standard Voluntary cook stove project and a UN Clean Development Mechanism Programme of Activities currently in the late stages of the pre-registration audit. Together, these are Up Energy’s flagship projects, serving as a proof of concept for Up Energy’s innovative business model.

Over 96% of rural households in Uganda collect firewood for cooking and heating using traditional three stone fires that are highly inefficient and extremely polluting. This high dependency on wood for cooking fuel coupled with inefficient cooking methods has contributed significantly to the country’s alarming deforestation rate. Between 1990 and 2005 Uganda lost 26.3% of its forest cover and has a current deforestation rate of over 2% per year. The WHO estimates that these highly polluting three stone fires and the resulting indoor air pollution cause 20,000 deaths per year in Uganda.

TASLAF has in the past provided advice to Up Energy on Employee share options and advice on taxation of employment benefits.
