Bangladesh can develop worsening energy crisis situation, Bangladesh consumption level is still lagging behind, with only 16% of the population of electricity, per capita annual consumption is only 96 kilowatts; Bangladesh government has put the development of the power industry as a top priority. With the rapid growth of the industrial, commercial and household electricity consumption increased Bangladesh's demand for electricity increases. Faced with the problem of power shortage, the government is considering the development of atomic energy and the use of other energy sources.
Grameen annual energy investment of about $ 450 million, 60% of the investment for solar energy panels, these must be imported from abroad. 25% invested in the battery, Bangladesh is committed sufficient renewable energy, in which the different renewable energy, energy efficiency maximum. Bangladesh average sunlight 4-6.5 kilowatts per hour per kilometer, is providing solar energy photovoltaic power plants for the home and small remote villages. Rural renewable energy development plan planned to place 64,000 solar home systems. To date, 37,000 rural solar home systems, production capacity of 2.5 MW have been placed, but there is still a huge gap.
Currently, the Bangladesh government has prioritized the development of solar power projects status. Import duties and VAT Bangladesh solar power plant has been relief, so that ordinary people suffered power outages plagued benefit. Bangladesh Government to abolish all import duties on solar equipment. According to Bangladesh "Daily Star" reported that the measure can improve the penetration of solar products in Bangladesh to alleviate the country's power shortage situation. The newspaper quoted an official as saying the Ministry of Finance has submitted a formal report on the removal of all import duties on solar equipment to the National Tax Board.
The official said the Treasury report was made in accordance with the Prime Minister's instructions. Bangladesh currently imports duty solar equipment between 6-60%. According to official estimates, the abolition of import tax solar equipment, solar products Main costs will drop substantially. Bangladesh is currently a very small scale solar energy product, mainly in remote areas, solar energy products but there is a great space for development. Currently, the Bangladesh government has begun a "renewable energy policy" to encourage the use of solar energy to meet electricity demand.
