Magazine Description

In this issue

Bangladesh has long been endeavoring to substantially generate electricity through solar technology. The country also achieved some success, but in small scale systems, popularly known as Solar Home System, which is mainly installed in the rural off-grid areas. However, the country could not yet make a mark in large-scale system that could have mitigated the pressure on base load to some extent. The main obstacle is scarcity of necessary land required for solar system. Then, the experts, stakeholders and government authorities started thinking about utilizing the rooftops of residential, commercial and industrial buildings, and considered that there is a huge potential here. A recent virtual meeting was told that around 5,000MW could come from the rooftops and stressed the need for a realistic assessment. However, the initial move with the residential rooftops has had a very bad experience as the roof owners could not be attracted with the policies offered so far. On the other hand, there is a lack of appropriate financial model and policy deficiencies also in cases of the commercial and industrial buildings. If the obstacles could be removed with sincerity, the solar system could be scaled up which would make a big difference in the country’s energy landscape.
