© 2019 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd. Household waste generation has become a serious environmental issue in recent years. However, some technologies are available to convert household domestic waste into energy. One of such techniques is the biogas generation using household waste. The biogas generation technique is not a new method of energy generation, but its production efficiency is questionable. Biogas yield from domestic waste are influenced by pH level, temperature, HRT and C/N ratio. Moisture and the temperature levels in the biogas generation systems are very critical to its production efficiency, especially this is highly affected in the colder weather condition. Solar assisted biogas plant may provide better production efficiency compared to the traditionally designed biogas plant. In this paper, the scopes and opportunities of solar assisted biogas generation are reviewed. Possible benefits and challenges associated with the solar assisted biogas generation are highlighted.
