According to my studies, I think Biomass is one of the most potential source of energy production. It can be produced from forest areas, agricultural residues, urban wastes, industrial wastes and natural vegetation. Envipower Energy and Fertilisers Pvt Ltd, is Nepal’s first-ever biogas plant that produces bottled compressed natural gas (CNG). ( CNG is an alternative to liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) which is popularly known as cooling gas. It is also one of the best energy solution for Nepal.

It also offers many practical benefits for families and individuals, like indoor air pollution is reduced, money is saved on lighting fuels, time is saved from gathering firewood, and sanitation improves as latrines are connected to biogas construction companies. Nepal’s Biogas Project has assisted in constructing over 200,000 biogas plants with partnerships from NGO’s and private biogas construction companies. This growth is accelerating. In addition, residents are responsible for operating and maintaining their own plants, which are built to last 20 years. They are also able to receive aid through several microfinance facilities operating in the country, ensuring ownership and sustainability. So it is an affordable, cleaner and environmentally sustainable energy.
