Technical and Economic Challenges for Taking Renewable Energy Power to Bangladesh.

FEASIBILITY STUDY:Technical and Economic Challenges for Taking Renewable Energy Power to BangladeshOur Team’s objectiveOur objective is to conduct a feasibility study on renewable energy in Bangladesh that will be used as a base document by Dhaka university and other public and private universities.Status Quo:Bangladesh has small reserves of oil and coal, but potentially very large natural gas resources. Commercial energy consumption is around 71% natural gas, with the remainder almost entirely oil (plus limited amounts of hydropower and coal).The Government of Bangladesh has established a goal of providing electrical power to all its citizens and several projects are already in place to achieve this goal.Providing power without intensifying the effects of climate change is a priority for the people of Bangladesh.Renewable Energy policy is adopted in 2008. The policy identifies the following major renewable energy sources namely – solar photo voltaic, solar thermal power/concentrating solar power, wind energy, biomass, biogas, micro hydro and minihydro. Open questions: These open questions have been formulated to provide a framework in which the feasibility study will be conducted.What energy companies/energy sectors are providing energy for the region?What kind of renewable energies exist for Bangladesh?What are the industrial needs to be considered?What are technologies imported (why?) or locally produced?What is the current renewable energy infrastructure?What power capacity should be chosen for generators and why?What are regulations in place? Potential regulatory problems?
