Author: Absalom Vilho 2011 (Nature Conservation Diploma-Polytechnic of Namibia)
Summary of Findings: The study concluded that although the Vesto stove was the most fuel efficient, a homemade fuel-efficient stove was the most user friendly and affordable. It was second in fuel-efficiency and therefore the one most recommended for rural Namibians.

Title: The Perception and Acceptance of Alternative Energy Sources for Cooking
Author: Michaella Phemelo 2004 (Nature Conservation Diploma-Polytechnic of Namibia)
