Description: The village Karitapam is located in a flood plan area adjoining the banks of river Brahmaputra and suffers from annual flooding and stagnation of floodwater for more than a month as reported by the village community. The sonai river in a stagnating stage flows at a distance of 0.6 km from the village hence energy option under micro hydro is ruled out. Besides the average annual wind speed is about 2.70 m/s, which makes wind energy potential an unviable option even for micro Wind Turbines. In regards to biomass based power generation the potential for wood based biomass gasifier is limited as the area suffers from shortage of woody biomass, as the village source woody biomass from external areas and the primary source for wood biomass is the homestead gardens, with 100% of wood biomass being used for cooking energy requirement.
