Tackling carbon reduction in rural areas 

Vodafone's connectivity helped Project Surya equip rural households with clean cooking technologies, replacing biomass and other harmful cooking methods. This helped rural households breathe better, making the nation ready for a cleaner future.


Business Challenge

  • Household air pollution resulting from cooking with biomass kills three times as many people around the world as malaria, HIV/AIDS and TB combined.
  • In India alone 875,000 deaths occur every year due to Indoor Air Pollution.
  • Project Surya is working with local energy entrepreneurs to distribute clean cookstoves, at a subsidised cost. In addition, it pays the users based on usage and the resulting savings in carbon emissions.
  • To enable paying the users of clean cookstoves for their usage, Project Surya needed to gather regular and accurate usage data from each stove.

Vodafone Solution

  • Working together with TERI and Nexleaf Analytics, the solution developed by Vodafone allows Project Surya to remotely collect data from Nexleaf's smartphone based StoveTrace sensor through the data network, including 3G, with the SIMs managed centrally.

Business Benefit

  • Vodafone's Remote Connect Solution offered reliable coverage across locations, especially in Uttar Pradesh, which was a key area of focus for the project.
  • If coverage to an individual SIM dropped out, the SIMs automatically connected to another network.
  • Vodafone's global M2M reach ensured that the project could be replicated across the world.
