Abstract

The designs of renewable energy systems introducing biomass resources for a rural area in Japan are studied. It has been found that gasification of woody biomass can supply electricity at a reasonable cost, and bio-gasification of animal manure becomes cost effective provided inverse onerous contract of the waste is available. The renewable energy system reduces the carbon emissions by 65% and reduces the annual cost of the entire system by 15%.
