Renewable energy is non-replenishable and is extracted from natural sources. It is the process of harnessing nature’s power to provide green renewable energy in producing electricity. This electricity can be used to power a number of things such as homes, and vehicles and can be used to power even generators in power plants. Using renewable energy can help to reduce energy imports to a great extent. It can also help to reduce fossil fuel use, which is the largest source of carbon dioxide emissions on the planet.


● It has a higher upfront cost
● It is an unpredictable source of energy
● It requires more storage capacity
● It is restricted by geographical limitations


● Building of Dams can disrupt the environment.
● Blocking the flow of water disrupts fish migration.
● Hydroelectric plants can harm aquatic life due to emissions of methane and Carbon dioxide.
● Construction of dams can displace animals and people living in those areas.


● The cost of purchasing solar energy equipment is very high.
● Solar energy is dependent on the weather and has an impact on cloudy and rainy days.
● Installing solar panels requires lots of space to produce enough energy to satisfy energy needs.


● Installation of wind turbines requires huge spaces of land which are generally available far from cities.
● Wind turbines can cause noise pollution and disrupt the aesthetics of a landscape
● Spinning blades of turbines can kill birds and other wildlife.
● Wind turbines are only effective in very windy areas and are dependent on the weather conditions.


Bamboo is classified as grass from the plant family and belongs to the Bambusoideae subfamily. Its stems, like tall grass, are hollow and are the largest grass of all others. It can also grow rapidly into a forest without much intervention. It is the fastest-growing plant in the world, with different growth rates depending on its different species.

Specific species of woody bamboo can grow as tall as thirty meters in height and as wide as twenty centimeters in diameter. Some species of bamboo can even reach heights of forty meters and grow thirty centimeters in diameter.

Bamboo requires far less attention than other plants and trees to grow. The fertilizer requirement of bamboo plants is also significantly less. This makes bamboo an ideal economical choice as an alternative biomass energy source.


What makes bamboo an ideal choice for a sustainable energy source is that it is different from other trees, which when cut from the bark, seize to grow. Whereas, a bamboo plant continuously produces new perennial culms from its underground root system year after year. In addition to this, Its growth rate is very fast, up to 1 meter a day.

Another reason bamboo makes an ideal choice for biofuel is because of its rapid growth rate. Production and harvesting of bamboo can help curb deforestation and reduce the pressure on existing forests. When compared to petroleum and other sources of energy, it produces and emits much fewer pollutants which makes it even more eco-friendly.

Utilizing bamboo as biomass for biofuel is a good option as it is a fast-growing and extremely versatile crop. Bamboo holds significant potential to be a power generator for powering communities. This is because It renews itself rapidly and grows much faster than any other crop, which makes it sustainable as well.

One billion people still live without access to electricity, worldwide. Bamboo as alternative energy has immense potential to be used for electricity generation and powering those communities. A single bamboo pole has the ability to provide enough electricity to a household to last one whole month.

Bamboo is also the answer to fighting climate change as it produces 30% more oxygen when compared to trees spanning across an equal area of land.


AAKASH is among those visionaries who have taken early steps toward a sustainable ecosystem. The bamboo plantation is encouraged for not just the energy requirements fulfilled by Bamboo Biomass but also for the environmental benefits.

AAKASH advocates the use of Bamboo Biomass to meet energy requirements in a clean and renewable manner. AAKASH has identified that Bamboo can provide as much energy as the conventional source with lesser environmental impact and carbon footprint.

AAKASH works with the collaborators involved in bringing about a constant business model on all aspects of Bamboo cultivation. Farming the plantation to mitigate climate change, would enhance the investors with power generation, infrastructure, or a productive business style. AAKASH involves various stakeholders aiming at forming a business based on Bamboo and Bamboo biomass, ensuring an effective ecosystem.
