Abstract: Energy is one of the major concerns for the developing future of any nation and electricity is the most useful form of energy. Around 65% people are getting electricity. As Bangladesh is blessed with suitable geographical location for solar energy and perfect weather condition for Biomass energy, we can think only solar and Biogas energy to supply them electricity. Although solar home system (SHS) is getting popular in the non grid areas of Bangladesh, however per unit cost of such electricity is extremely high (nearly 50 cents). Poor households cannot afford to buy such an expensive system. Sort term loan is being offered to the rural people to popularize the SHS; however response of the rural masses to adopt such system is a bit sluggish. This paper focuses on potential of biomass resources and its proper utilization can help to give an easy realistic solution on the way of sustainable energy security of Bangladesh.
