Increasing human population translates to increased demands including fuelwood. Over 80% of domestic energy need and especially rural areas of Kenya is from fuelwood and the reason for MERCFA promoting use of energy saving stoves (kuni mbili jiko) to reducing firewood usage.

In 2013, MERCFA through support by the Green Zones Development Support Project (GZDSP) intorduced an energy saving pilot project  by providing 60 households with kuni mbili jikos. Kuni Mbili jiko is a two in one because it can use firewood and charcoal alternatively. It has a clay lining that makes it retain heat. 

Survey conducted in 2016 proved that the stoves reduce by half the firewood used in these households.
