Electricity Tariff for Consumers of Palli Bidyut Samity (PBSs) Under Bangladesh Rural Electrification Board (BREB) in Bangladesh.

Nov 28, 2019 | Power & Energy

Description of Project:

Since the Government of Bangladesh has set a target of achieving 10% of power generation from renewable energy by 2021 and with Bangladesh showing an enormous potential in 
solar energy, this feasibility study project will assess the potential of floating solar photovoltaic power 
generation in Bangladesh. The broad objective of the project is to facilitate the renewable energy uptake in 
Bangladesh.  
e.Gen is currently undertaking/will undertake the following tasks: i) Conducting due diligence and analysis to 
assess countrywide potential of solar PV power projects. ii) Technical, financial, economic and safeguard due 
diligence will be conducted as part of the feasibility study. Feasibility study will identify sub-projects those 
are feasible for public private investment. Iii) Identify suitable project sites for deployment of wind, biomass 
and other renewable energy resources. iv) Develop commercially viable business models that can be readily 
replicated and scaled up. v) Grid impact assessment will be carried out by using appropriate software and 
analytical tools to check the impact of renewable intake on the selected sites. vi) Officials from the PGCB will 
be trained on how to conduct grid impact assessment. vii) Based on the power system analysis, updated grid 
code and relevant guideline will be proposed. viii) Help address the necessary grid code updates, specifically 
automatic frequency control, voltage control, economic dispatching, cross-country interconnections, tariff 
structures to incentivize generators for grid frequency and power factor control, and demand forecasting and 
generation planning (including prescribing penalties for noncompliance). ix) Training and capacity 
development support will be provided to the relevant power agencies. Trainings will be provided on 
advanced technologies, floating solar system and business model development.
