It was jointly implemented by GIZ and Bangladesh’s Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Agency (SREDA). Addressing the event as the chief guest, State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid said the government was eager to promote renewable energy sourcing in the country.

Seeking technical cooperation from energy experts, he said commercial production of bio-fuel could help meet the energy demand for the country’s public transport, reducing dependency on traditional fuel. The minister insisted that successful models of renewable energy sources be expanded across the country, in order to ensure sustainable development. Power Division Secretary Dr Ahmad Kaikaus praised entrepreneurs who have been engaging in renewable energy sourcing and dealing with energy efficiency.
