BIO MASS ASSESSMENT SURVEY IN U.P
Funding Partner:  : Ministry of Non-conventional energy resources, Govt. of India, NEDA
Year  : 1997
Coverage Area : All India – with specific reference to UP and Uttaranchal 
Achievements : It was an effort to find out the energy consumption profile, assessing generation and consumption of agriculture residues and estimating the calorific value for conversion into electricity, of selected villages and towns in Sandila Tehsil of Hardoi District. SRISHTI conducted the research project on Bio Mass Assessment Survey in Sandila Tehsil, District Hardoi. U.P. during 1996-97. The survey involved 500 rural households, 50 industries and 70 villages. It covered all the developmental blocks in tehsil. The study has estimated the generation of bio-mass (crop, residues, agro industrial waste, municipal waste, forestry and animal husbandry waste etc), its present use, possible commercial utilization, surplus availability and feasibility of obtaining surplus for sustained availability for running a power plant (gas fire based technology) at tehsil level. 

The study was comprehensive with slant towards finding out the scope for non conventional energy sources in these areas. The report submitted by SRISHTI had a landmark effect on the future policies of NEDA and bio mass energy recovery in rural sector became an important component in the energy profile of any place in the state.
