Abstract: Today energy seems to be fundamental for keeping up the expectation for everyday comforts of the human. It is also noteworthy point that energy crisis is a serious issue in the vast majority of the developing countries like India. A conceivable reason is that, the diminishing level of regular energy sources and the lack of initiatives for introducing the alternative sources of energy. Besides, the wasteful and illicit method for utilising energy adds to the various problems related to the energy crisis. It gives the idea that the expanding measure of unapproved battery worked vehicles and their unlawful method for utilising electricity is one of the fundamental reasons of energy deficit in the various states of the nation. Battery operated electric e-rickshaws have recently emerged in the public road transport sector in India. This study deals with the present situation of the e-rickshaws and electricity alternatives for their usage in India. The biogas as a potential renewable source of energy can be proved as an alternate potential and efficient solution to the energy crisis. Also, natural impacts, social advantages, and difficulties for setting up a biogas plant have been assessed.
