Energy is one of the three most fundamental necessities for sustainable development. The consistently expanding interest for energy to meets domestic requirement and the absence of environment friendly alternatives have devastating effect on the environment. Many studies have shown the importance of renewable energy sources that can militates against the negative consequences of using fuels that have an adverse effect on the environment; these include fuel-wood/charcoal which are commonly utilized in a majority of house-holds. Thus this study was conceived to evaluate the socio economic feature and biogas awareness and perception in Gwagwalada town, Abuja. The methodology includes selection and analysis of administered questionnaires to selected study samples via a descriptive statistics method. The study reveals that more than half (60.0%) of the respondents have not heard about the biogas technology, while 40.0% have heard about the technology due to their age, sex, income level and educational experience.
