In this issue

Bangladesh’s power sector is progressing well and has made at least one milestone achievement over the last 50 years since the country’s independence. Almost the entire population of the landmass is now under the coverage of grid electricity. There are, however, criticisms about its supply quality due to frequent disruptions particularly in the rural areas. The achievement was also marred by the fact that the present price of electricity is considered to be much higher than expected or affordable levels. This is where the achievement went beyond Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s vision to ensure energy for all at affordable prices as a strategy for economic development of the country. The progress on developing the primary energy sector lagged far way behind the requirement, forcing the country to become increasingly dependent on imports. There is also an apprehension that the country’s import dependence would gradually increase to 90 percent by 2030 unless there are any large hydrocarbon discoveries in the country by then. Necessary efforts towards new discoveries are also seen absent as of now.

If the situation continues with the present trend as far as primary energy is concerned, the cost of electricity would soar beyond any estimates. So, it is high time to give aggressive drive to develop the primary energy sector of the country.

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
