Winners of the Digital Innovations Challenge

Peter Bulovec from ixo with Mattias Ohlsen from Emerging Cooking Solutions

The Digital Innovation Challenge is an initiative hosted by UNCDF in partnership with the Clean Cooking Alliance, to address the challenges and explore opportunities in the clean cooking sector through the use of data and digitisation. The challenge brings together clean cooking companies and digital service providers to find solutions to issues such as data collection, monitoring, data protection, and security. This includes enhancing access to finance and carbon markets for the clean cooking sector.

As winners of the Bootcamp held in Nairobi last week, ixo together with Emerging Cooking Solutions was able to demonstrate how the Emerging Eco platform that we have built automates digital measurement, reporting and verification (dMRV) of metered and measured clean energy devices, and enables high-quality ย digital Carbon credits to be issued directly onto the ixo blockchain. The award comes with a grant of $500,000 to scale the market adoption of this platform.
