In December alone, the Bangladeshi authorities approved 630 MW of PV projects.
Scientists in Bangladesh designed a cadmium telluride solar cell with upper/top and back contact materials made of aluminum (Al) and nickel (Ni). The device reportedly showed a quantum efficiency of around 100 % at visible wavelengths.
Bangladesh has implemented a new rule stating that new buildings with rooftop spaces exceeding 92.2 square meters must install net-metered solar power systems as a prerequisite for grid connection.
Despite soiling and mechanical stress, PV deployed between or close to rail tracks is not just a crazy idea, states a Bangladeshi-Australian research group. The scientists conducted a techno-economic analysis on a 128 kW demonstrator and found it may achieve a levelized cost of energy of only $0.052/kWh.
Premier Solar Powertech, in a joint venture with Amara Raja Infra, has secured a $130 million PV contract in Bangladesh. The company will provide technical support and supply 140 MWp of high-efficiency solar panels to the project.
Amara Raja Group’s EPC arm has secured the contract to build a 100 MW (AC) solar plant in Bangladesh. The $130 million project is funded by the EXIM Bank of India.
The government of Bangladesh has taken steps to improve conditions for independent power producers (IPPs) that develop utility-scale projects, in order to attract more domestic investments in solar and renewables.
The economic burden of air pollution in Bangladesh, for which transport is one of the major reasons, calls for strong policy-level intervention to increase the adoption of electric cars.
