PowerUP’s mission

Approximately 2.6 billion people globally cook using solid fuels such as biomass, charcoal, and coal, all of which are inefficient, expensive, toxic, and significant drivers of deforestation. PowerUP is solving this by delivering electric cooking appliances that produce income and health benefits while reducing carbon emissions. PowerUP’s appliances make cooking affordable, faster, safer, and more environmentally friendly for its customers—more than 90% of whom are first-time users of electric cooking solutions.

“PowerUP’s partnership with the Autodesk Foundation is fundamental to our identity as product designers. The tools and mentorship from Autodesk allow us to design the best possible e-cooking solutions.”

— Kato Kibuka, CEO & Co-Founder, PowerUP
