Abstract: Energy management is a very important concept from the point of view of economics, as it explains the energy generated from various sources in various dimensions and ways such as alternating current, high, low or medium voltage, high and low amps, time-variant etc., all these combinations can be used in smart ways. It is used to decide the amount of energy which is required and then is stored for the long as well as short terms to avoid power cut and failure issues. The municipal solid waste (MSW) is also one of the major issues which mainly increases due to the urban population. The conventional dumping and treatment techniques for the MSW have some major ecological difficulties. In this paper, a preliminary report has been presented for the Waste-to-energy conversions. This study also identifies the potential of calorific value from the municipal solid waste generated in the capital city of Uttarakhand (Dehradun). All the related and relevant information are used to analyze energy penetration through proper literature reviews of different research papers and articles.
