German Solar Association (BSW-Solar) Conducted Field Mission in Bangladesh
The Government of Bangladesh has laid out a series of development targets for 2021 in line with its vision to establish Bangladesh as a self-sufficient developed economy by 2041. One of the targets is to generate 5% of total electricity from renewable sources by 2021. Fulfilment of this target is interlinked with market development of the sector including capacity, technological innovation, financial instruments etc. Experiences show that Renewable Energy Associations of different countries play an instrumental role in catalysing market development of renewable energy sector. There is scope to develop Bangladesh Solar and Renewable Energy Association (BSREA) further to utilise their full potential in market transition for renewable energy.
