Increasing demand of the energy along with the depletion of the world oil reserves had forced us to utilize the alternative energies in our daily life. One of those is that we should develop its utilization on biogas which a source of renewable energy and be able to overcome the problems that caused by the abundance of organic waste around us. Methane is a major element which found in biogas, therefore a preliminary study of the biogas utilization as resource of energy in a power plant can be preceed by the use of methane as a fuel gas in genset. This study compares the performance of CS 1000 L generator set that use methane gas fuel and LPG gas fuel. The results shows that the efficiency of thermal generator using methane fuel reaches 26.22 %. This value is higher than thermal efficiency genset that using LPG gas which only reaches the value of 8,26 %.
