Nowadays, the increased energy consumption is one of the biggest problems facing the countries. According to the Report of energy policy prospect, it is predicted that the consumption of energy in the world will be doubled every decade by 2020. Therefore,according to the non-renewability of fossil fuel resources,using the renewable energy resources seems essential. Biomass resource is one of the renewable energy resources. Given that there are a large amount of animal wastes in rural areas due to the number of dairy and beef cattle units in Iran,using this resource can be very helpful. Therefore,the accurate management strategies should be compiled and provided by relevant experts for villagers' optimized use of animal wastes as the energy resource. This paper is seeking to provide a new and integrated model for the functions of technological innovation system in application of biomass resources (animal wastes) in rural areas based on the previous studies.
