Renewable Energy Policy of Bangladesh
Description/achievement of initiativeIn Bangladesh efficient utilization of renewable energy resources is yet to assume
commercial dimensions and hence rational policy dissemination on renewable energy
usage is essential. The renewable energy includes solar, wind, biomass, hydro, geothermal,
tidal wave etc.
The objectives of the Renewable Energy Policy of Bangladesh include: to harness the potential of renewable energy resources and dissemination of renewable energy technologies in rural, peri-urban and urban areas; to enable, encourage and facilitate both public and private sector investment in renewable energy projects; and to develop sustainable energy supplies to substitute indigenous non-renewable energy supplies.
