Magazine Description

In this issue

In the last 6 years Bangladesh failed to bring in any new primary fuel other than imported liquid fuel for rental power plants. Exploration of own coal remains a far cry while import of coal and LNG may still take several years to implement. The country has attained a power generation capacity of over 12,000 MW, including 500 MW import from India. Due to fuel supply constraints and other reasons, the generation could reach beyond 8,000 MW very rarely. Still there is hardly any hue and cry for power now, as the demand in last winter remained low. However, the government may not achieve its targeted power from coal in its 2021 vision as many critical works are lagging behind the target. On the other hand, the gas supply security remains vulnerable for poor vision, inept management, and bureaucratic interference. In the last 7 years, gas production could be increased by 1,000 MMCFD, but the deficit remains same at 500 MMCFD. Fuel supply challenges must be met with genuine implementable programs and dynamic management. Unless fuel supply challenges are met, the energy security cannot be achieved. Without energy security, the national vision to become mid-income country will turn into far cry.
