The gap in electricity availability between urban and remote areas is one of the problems that must be resolved. Some remote areas provide independent electricity using diesel generators. One potential of renewable energy that can be exploited is the utilizationof biogas from livestock waste as generator fuel.This paper aims to describe the potential of household-scale biogas power generators as one of the promising solutions for electrifying remote areasor islands in Indonesia. As an established technology, biogas technology offers various benefits as a renewable energy source. Biogas technology also offers side products in the form of high-quality organic fertilizer. Household-scale biogas-fueled generators can be modified from small-sized gasoline-powered generatorsby adding biogas line in the carburetor. The results indicate that a household-scale biogas fueledgenerator is asuitable choice for the development of electricity in remote areas.The maximum benefit is obtained through an integrated system combiningthe activities of farming or gardening, animal husbandry, and the provision of biogas electricity. The high investment for digester construction and the price of biogas generators as well as the absence of incentives for biogas electricity are among theobstaclesneed to be overcome by involving stakeholders.
