In fact, more than three-quarters of the nation's commercial energy demand is being met by natural gas. The nation furthermore demands 3. The new purchases are affecting improvement initiatives in other sectors causing reduced export earnings and curtailing employment opportunities.
This massive failure in the energy sector is mostly attributed to prolonged negligence, inappropriate implementation, inefficiency and lack of planning. To make matters worse, natural gas reserves are expected to expire by The only coal mine of the country is in the development stage, the reserve of which is also expected to dry up anywhere from 75 to 80 years after the start of their operations.
It was encouraged in December to re-open it by the United States ambassador in private communication. Renewable energy in Bangladesh Bangladesh has 15 MW solar energy capacity through rural households and 1.
The country's prospect of geothermal energy extraction has also been discussed by researchers. Inthe government would install furnace-oil based MW capacity of power plant.
Besides the government would also hire another diesel- or furnace oil-based power plant having capacity of MW in to keep load shedding into mild level, the official said. However, the government also contemplates to establish four coal-fired-based power plants with capacity of producing MW of electricity each with public and private partnership PPP in Rajshahi and Chittagong region.
The power division has tried to use the government's budgetary allocation of Tk. During the meeting, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina permitted the power division to implement the PDB plan to reduce load shedding up to a tolerable level.
Inefficiencies and infrastructure[ edit ] Bangladesh has small reserves of oil and coal, but very large natural gas resources. Non-commercial energy sources, such as wood fueland crop residuesare estimated to account for over half of the country's energy consumption.
A news report stated that: Bangladesh is considered one of the most arousing energy growth nations. More than a third of Bangladesh's million people still have no access to electricity, while the country often is able to produce only some of its 11,megawatt generation capacity.
A major hurdle in efficiently delivering power is caused by the inefficient distribution system. American engineer Sanwar Sunny said that the city should put more effort in zoning areas to encourage more self-reliant subdivisions and higher density housing around subways to be more sustainable, as during peak times load shedding would not affect everyone.
It will reduce effects of power cuts and provide stability to the power sector.
He proposed that Radio transmitters could be operating remotely in unlicensed radio bands using two way real time communication and transmit coded instructions from the central to the circuit breakers in selected coordinates of the micro grids substations thereby maintain multiple power flow lines with automated control and digital metering.
Using this technology, Feed-in tariffs FIT would also be possible, as the energy usage could be monitored remotely and private power generation and energy efficient entities could be offered rebates and incentives.
However, The Secretary of the Ministry of Power, Government of Bangladesh has said that the government has no plans to do so. Planned to go into operation byit will be the country's first nuclear power plant.
