As reliability of large, centralized electrical power grid is decreasing, it is an opportune moment to investigate other sources of energy for critical operations. Distributed Power Generation (DPG) technologies are cost-effective and reliable alternate source to help organizations keep the power coming. Distributed power generation means “Power generation at or near customer sites, grid connected or isolated, small in size, quick responsive”. The present paper is an attempt to draw a Strategic Planning framework for the Distributed Power Generation. With the increase in energy requirements and the consequent diminishing conventional sources such as petroleum, coal etc, there is a need to look into new methods and sources of energy generation. The present study is based on judgmental data of the people involved in the business. This paper gives more emphasis on Strategic Analysis and Strategic Evaluation by Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Analytic Network Process (ANP) tools.
