Peter Scott is one of the world’s leading experts in the design and dissemination of biomass-conserving technologies in the developing world. In 1990 Peter committed his life to saving the forests of Africa. Since that time, he has designed a number of fuel-efficient technologies and trained producers in over 20 countries to set up for-profit businesses. His trainees have constructed over 400,000 household/institutional stoves, bread ovens, food dryers, and tobacco curing systems. In 2006 his work was honored with an Ashden Award for supporting local producers in Southern Africa to create highly profitable institutional stove businesses. In Malawi these producers have sold over $2 million in institutional stoves in the last six years. Peter runs a biomass energy consulting company (Rocket Science Consulting) and manages rocketstove.org. He has worked with a number of partners such as Aprovecho Research Center, German Technical Cooperation, Nature Conservancy, USAID, World Vision, The Paradigm Project, ETHOS, EWB, and Mercy Corps.
