[Gasification] Need for off-grid non-solar electricity where biomass is plentiful

Tom and all,

Please guide us (as a start) to understanding the needs and realities of off-grid non-solar power where biomass is plentiful.   Are there some key links?

Low-population, forested high latitude areas (less sunlight) without easy boat or train access would seem to be a major geographic region of need.  Diesel generators seem to dominate the power generation.   What sources confirm these statements, how big is the problem (expressed as numbers of gensets at what sizes), and what is being done about it, and by whom?    (Canadians, please reply with your info.)

This should be a significant topic for this Listserv.

Are you in a marine air environment? There are many villages that need electricity in low coastal areas..
