This research discusses the biomass gasification technology and which potential feedstock is available and their location in Ghana. It further explains which type of distribution network will be appropriate and the target group who will benefit from the technology and how affordable and appropriate it would be to them. The thesis also discusses which policies will be needed to promote this kind of renewable energy for the small and medium scale gasification plants in Ghana. The method employed in this paper was a desk top research, identifying the potential feed stock in Ghana, given an overview of solid biomass resources in Ghana, describing the gasification technology to generate electricity and the potential for the small and medium scale gasification plants on the Ghanaian market. The outcome of this paper revels that, there is a great potential for the gasification technology in Ghana when the right polices and measures are put in place.
