ABSTRACT
In the age of modern techniques for energy conservation & energy renewal, there are many areas in all parts of the world which are confronted with energy issues. Specially a state like Sikkim in a developing country like India, where most of the population is settled in remote areas of the Himalayan range & is still deprived of many technological benefits, needs to be studied carefully to draw a fruitful conclusion so that the study can prove helpful to everyone (public or govt.) in overcoming the issues. This paper studies the preference modes of renewable energy sources in a village "Tikpur" of Sikkim. Through this paper, a clear understanding of the fact that wood has always been & will always be the most suitable source of fuel for the concerned population. A calculation has been done to prove the fact using figures that due to the changing economy & price variation in LPG, the public of Tikpur prefers wood to gasifier & gasifier to LPG
