The present day demands are largely met by non-renewable fossils fuels like coal and petroleum which are fast depleting and create pollution in the environment. They can hardly last for another 2-3 centuries. Therefore, the need for alternate sources of energy is felt which should be renewable and at the same time should meet the minimum energy demands of the people. Biomass power is one such possibility which is renewable, non-polluting and is suited to the Indian conditions. The vast area of wasteland which India has can be utilized for energy plantations with the species like Lantana camara, prosopis Juliflora, Leucaena leucocephala, Acacia nilotica and Eucalyptus etc. This paper discusses the potentials and prospects of utilising biomass energy in Indian context
