The estimates by the International Energy Agency (IEA) in 2013 indicated that in 2011 about 2.64 billion people relied on biomass, mostly fuel wood for cooking. Sub‐Saharan African (SSA) countries which have about 79% of their population relying on traditional biomass energy, account for 26% of global population which still rely on traditional biomass energy for cooking and heating. Biomass energy accounts for almost 15% of the World’s total energy supply and as much as 35% in developing countries mostly for cooking and heating.
