Grid integration of solar energy and energy efficiency to meet NDC targets in Bangladesh
Leading mission team and programme design
To meet the fast growing electricity demand in the country, the government of Bangladesh aims at using the country’s solar potential along with grid-connected solar energy predominantly in the rural areas.
Global21 leads an appraisal mission to set up a new programme “Energy efficiency and grid integration of solar energy in Bangladesh”. The programme supports Bangladesh in implementing its nationally determined contributions (NDC) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and in fulfilling its commitment under the Paris Agreement.
Moreover, the programme complements a financial cooperation programme (KfW) aiming to improve the power distribution system by introducing smart grid technologies.
