The concept paper represents possible opportunities for strategic investment in remote area development and further due attention is paid to determine its feasibility. We examined the status and performance of biomass gasification unit for electricity generation fuelled by woody biomass installed at Energy Centre, Rajiv Gandhi Technological University Bhopal, (India). The main objective of the research project is to utilize the resources of existing biomass feedstock and make performance analysis under purpose of fulfilling the electrical demand of Energy Centre Rajiv Gandhi Technological University Bhopal (India) and rural users in powering of their home lighting, by means of renewable energy. The results of the work will be useful for the future engineering development of biomass gasification unit power generation technologies
