1. Family Size Biogas Plants MNRE is providing a subsidy on family size biogas plants under National Biogas Manure Management Programme (NBMMP). Biogas Plants capacity ranging 1, 2-4 Cum capacity are to be installed under this programme. Bio Energy Programme

1-    Family Size Biogas Plants To provide clean bio-gaseous fuel mainly for cooking purposes and also for other applications for reducing use of LPG and other conventional fuels.  To improve sanitation in villages by linking sanitary toilets with biogas plants; To mitigate Climate Change by preventing black carbon and methane emissions. The 4356 Family Size Biogas plants has been installed in various districts of Uttrakhand till date. Central Financial Assistance of Rs. 7000.00-11000.00 according to capacity of plant is admissible by MNRE, GoI. Year Wise and District Wise installed no. of Family Size Biogas Plants Sl.

2-    Biogas Power Generation Plants. The cow dung producing livestock in Uttarakhand is approximately 32 lac nos. 25kg cow dung is required for generation of 1m³ Biogas. Approximate quantity of cow dung is 16 lac kg which can be used for producing 640000 cum biogas generation.        Total capacity of 530 cum (10) Biogas Plants with 64 KW Power Generation capacity has been installed. The generated power is being used for running chaff cutter, water pumping, lighting, cooking, heating etc. Central Financial Assistance of Rs. 40000/KW is available from MNRE, GoI, and equivalent State subsidy is also being given by UREDA.

These Pine forests in Uttarakhand produces about 20.58 lakhs tones dry biomass (pine needle) annually. Since carriage of pine needle is not easy, hence if we consider the carriage of pine needles from the pine forests which are near to habitation or near the road head than approximately 40% of the biomass can be transported. Hence we can hope to get about 8.23 lakh tones every year and about 0.80 lakh tones pine needles is available in Van Panchayat and Civil Soyam Forest. The quantity of lantana can be taken as 2 Qtls/Hectare in reserve forest and in protected areas such as Rajaji National Park and Corbet National Park, the average yield of lantana is about 10 tls/Hectare. Keeping in this mind UREDA had organised a workshop on prospective uses of pine needles for energy application on September 2010.
