Environmental, economic and strategic reasons are behind the rapid impulse in the deployment of alternative or renewable energy sources that are taking place around the world. Further, the growing scarcity and rising prices of fossil fuels may also lead to economical instability in the future. These problems can be solved by the use of renewable energy resources, which have the capability to meet the world’s energy requirement. Thus sustainable and renewable energy sources, such as hydroelectricity, solar energy, wind energy, wave power, geothermal energy, biomass energy and tidal power are the need of the modern world. Solar and biomass are the alone renewable assets that accomplish a most of the locations of India. The use of solar radiation and biomass for power generation is growing rapidly, particularly in areas of the globe where these resources are plentiful. However, solar energy plants necessarily suffer from the intermittency and also from reduced irradiation periods particularly in winters and cloudy days. Biomass power plants have to confront the logistic problems associated with the continuous supply of very large amounts of a relatively scarce and seasonal fuel. Biomass alone access works but accumulation can be an issue, particularly in drought conditions results in variable operating and maintenance cost. To overcome the disadvantages of both of these plants, a hybrid system may provide the solution in maximizing the energy potential of these resources, increasing process efficiency, providing greater security of supply and reducing overall costs. This paper presents an introduction to the production of electricity from conventional concentrating solar power and biomass power plants, which is used as the basis to evaluate the technical and economic benefits associated with hybrid CSP-biomass energy systems. The generation technology and the operational characteristics are also presented in this paper. This paper outlines the most important configuration of this hybrid system along with the major problems and suitable solutions associated with this system have been also highlighted in this paper.
