In this issue

In April 2024, Bangladesh sweltered under relentless heat waves that stretched throughout the month, hitting a peak with temperatures nearly reaching 44 degrees Celsius in Jashore by the end of the month. This scorching heat sent electricity demand soaring, making the demand-supply gap even wider. Despite their best efforts, authorities found themselves resorting to daily power cuts lasting 5-6 hours, causing real struggles for people, especially those living in rural areas. The impact rippled across the country, affecting everything from farms to shops to schools, which had to shut their doors. Behind the scenes, the root issues of the power crisis - like problems with fuel supply and currency - were lurking, needing urgent attention to ensure there was enough electricity for everyone. And with temperatures climbing worldwide due to global warming, the urgency for action became even more pressing. Solutions have to be smart and integrated, focusing on boosting power generation, managing demand wisely, and being kind to the environment. That means picking the right mix of fuels, using local resources wisely, embracing eco-friendly tech, and being clever about when and how we use electricity. And it's not just about keeping the lights on; it's also about keeping our cities and towns livable. That means finding ways to beat the heat, so places don't turn into unbearable heat traps.

Without getting ahead of these challenges and finding smarter ways to manage our power, the government could find itself facing even bigger problems down the line.

LanguageEnglish

FrequencyFortnightly

Energy & Power (EP) is the first and only full-fledged fortnightly magazine that deals with the much cried over energy and power sector in Bangladesh. Since its inception in June 16, 2003, EP is working very hard to 
a) Develop public consciousness on sustainable and even development of energy sector; 
b) Assist the policy makers in assuming pragmatic policies for a balanced development of the energy sector; 
c) Continuous supply of information among public; and 
d) Develop a group of reporters in this field 

Bangladesh is an energy deficit country like other countries in the region and most of the people do not have adequate access to the energy and power. The country is completely dependent on fossil energy source; at the same time, it is one of the most inefficient energy using countries in the world. 
It lacks efficiency in planning, management, generation, distribution, load management and even at the end user level consumption. 
In spite of the above drawbacks, issues relating to utilization of renewable energy, exploring alternative use of energy, planned use of environment friendly energy are significantly undermined in Bangladesh. 
The biggest challenge of Bangladesh is to find a path for balanced growth of its energy sector. Despite its resource constraints, EP dynamically strives to provide theenergy sector with a flow of information and create public awareness; so that policymakers get guidelines and platforms for its sustainable development.

Code of Ethics 
EP believes that public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The duty of a journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues and professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist's credibility. We strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty.

The EP editorial policy is to share a dedication to ethical behavior and uphold the zero conflict of interest principles and highest standards of practice. 

EP believes in 
o Seeking truth and reporting the same 
o Minimize harm
