Energy Self-Sufficient Talukas-A Solution to National Energy Crisis

The study of a taluka in western Maharashtra has shown that all its energy needs in 2000 AD can he met by proper use of agricultural residues and energy plantations via agro-energy systems. These energies can replace petrol LPG, diesei kerosine and electricity. The study also suggests that biomass energy-based supply options have the capacity of providing employment to about 30,000 people in the taluka. Thus, energy self-sufficient talukas may provide an alternative development model to megacity-based, centralised energy model.
