International Conference on Energy Efficiency and Conservation Awareness (ICEECA 2019)
“Awareness is key for an energy conscious society,” was the underlying theme of the International Conference on Energy Efficiency and Conservation Awareness (ICEECA 2019) held in Dhaka on 11-12 November 2019. The conference brought together national and international experts, policy makers, and practitioners including experts from TUEWAS (GIZ Sector network Transport, Environment, Energy and Water in Asia) - who deliberated on energy efficiency with a focus on raising public awareness on this issue.
The conference was part of the Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Authority (SREDA), and REEEP II’s continued joint efforts to contribute towards achieving the goals defined in the National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Master Plan of Bangladesh. Over the past decade, Bangladesh’s economy has grown rapidly. The accelerated economy demands more and more energy. The government has undertaken measures to increase the supply of electricity. However, it is just as important to pay attention to the demand -side of energy management.
