In this issue

The country has long been discussing about coal-based power generation to ease pressure on natural gas, but little progress could be made. Successive governments so far have talks on the primary energy, but could not reach any decision on this crucial matter. Rather, they went for short-term solution to the electricity shortage. The immediate past government achieved some success in mitigating the shortage through an expensive contingency plan of setting up fuel oil-based rental, quick rental power plants. As a result, electricity price went up substantially. The Awami League-led alliance government while taking the decision also spoke of bringing down the prices as soon as they would be able to implement the simultaneously-planned coal-based power plants. But it failed to do that. As soon as the same government returned to power last January, it started working on the plan and holding frequent discussions side by side with signing agreements amid opposition mainly from the environmental groups. It is also trying to get foreign investment in implementing the mega plans. Now everything depends on proper implementation of the plans to get rid of the electricity crisis.
We offer our warm greetings to our readers, patrons, well-wishers and sponsors marking our stepping into the 12th years of publication. Being encouraged, we would like to come up with more issues like Green Page affecting the energy sector. New issues would be Climate Change and Water. We look forward their continued support in the future so we can contribute to the efforts of all in developing the sector as well as the nation.

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.

o Seeking truth and reporting the same
