Abstract: The world today faces a series of problems; prominent among them are rapid increase in population (decrease in free space), energy crises and waste. Worst hit by these problems are developing and underdeveloped countries. Various methods are known to mankind for the generation of energy which is classified as renewable and non renewable methods. The raw material required to generate energy is mostly fossil fuels which are depleting. Hence it is essential to go for alternative ways to generate energy. One way as an alternative source for energy generation is to use waste as a source of energy. This methodology aims at tackling two major problem of present world; namely waste disposable and energy shortage. The waste produced in an area is used to generate electricity to meet the ever growing need of electricity. In this paper a case study done on Morba village (situated in Maharashtra) is presented and the waste to energy potential of the village is found out. The methodology along with its detail is presented and the calculations are done on the basis of various research papers.
