Wind Power in Kutubdia


1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars

In Bangladesh only 39% of the population have access to the electricity grid.  The cost of running diesel generators for electricity is expensive and beyond the reach of most people living in rural areas, therefore hydrid systems which combine renewable energy and a diesel generator have strong potential.   A 1000 kW hybrid wind-disel power plant in Kutubdia, Bangladesh was found by a recent study to be a cost effective and environmentally friendly way of supplying power to remote areas currently not connected to the grid.

See a video of the wind turbines in action:

Bangladesh has plenty of opportunities for wind power, with strong winds blowing between March and September each year.
