Kitchen Performance Test (KPT)

The Kitchen Performance Test (KPT) is a field test used to evaluate stove performance in real-world settings. It is designed to assess actual impacts on household fuel consumption. KPTs are typically conducted in the course of an actual dissemination effort with real populations cooking normally, and give the best indication of real world changes.

Correction: The original version of the KPT data collection spreadsheet posted here contained an error. The dry wood per capita calculation on the wood and non-woody biomass sheets had the wet wood per capita as the denominator instead of adult equivalents. A corrected version of the spreadsheet was posted below on June 16, 2010. The PCIA Coordination Team apologizes for any inconvenience.
