Jost is a Certified Clean Cooking (CC) Specialist, with 14 years of experience in project and programme management in the fields of renewable energy, rural development, food security, agriculture, and socio-economy.

He has demonstrated expertise in designing technical specifications for cooking stoves, developing marketing strategies – including the facilitation of collaboration between the renewable energy industry, NGOs, private sector, research institutions, and local communities. During this time, Jost has worked with a range of clients, including GIZ, Practical Action, and SNV. As a result, he has significant strengths in overseeing operations and logistics, providing knowledge of clean cooking technology development, and strategizing marketing campaigns for such products.
