The BPDB has introduced plans to construct three solar energy vegetation in several components of the nation. It goals to create a 50 MW challenge in Rangunia, a 20 MW array in a coal mine pond in Dinajpur district, and a 7.6 MW set up in Rangamati district, in southeastern Bangladesh.

The state company printed advertisements on February 16 asserting that it’s on the lookout for worldwide companions for the development of energy vegetation, which can be invested from “money international trade underneath the ability sector growth fund of BPDB.” The company desires to fee the grid-tied vegetation inside 12 months of signing the contracts. The federal government will present land for the vegetation.

In line with BPDB officers, the 20 MW solar energy plant can be positioned in a polluted zone, in a pond that was created after extracting coal for years. The pond, in accordance with a not too long ago carried out feasibility examine, has the capability to host a floating solar energy plant with a 40 MW to 50 MW capability.

The 7.6 MW solar energy plant can be put in on a plot close to the 230 MW Karnafuli hydropower station, about 50 kilometers from the port metropolis of Chattogram. BPDB stated they wish to construct the brand new energy plant close to one other 7.4 MW PV array that got here on-line in 2019.

Bangladesh at present has the capability to generate 958 MW of electrical energy from renewable sources, together with 724 MW from photo voltaic.
