Developing and tapping renewable energy

Publié le par brightshine

Bangladesh has targeted to take its electricity generation capacity to 38,185 megawatts (MW) by 2030, anticipating that the demand would rise to 33,708MW. The government, however, plans to produce only 111MW of electricity from renewable energy sources, which is too low. 

Pressure on gas and petrol-based power generation has cost Bangladesh heavily. The government has to pay heavy subsidies for providing electricity at affordable lower prices. 

Countries around the world are busy developing renewable energy sources. China comes out as the leader in annual investments, first for solar heated water, third in ethanol production and fifth in wind energy. India is fourth in wind energy and solar-heated water investments. Of the 43 countries that have national renewable energy targets, especially eight are emerging economies: China, Brazil, India,This is how a skystream captures energy from the wind. Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines,An illustration showing the planets of our solar system. Egypt and South Africa. 

Bangladesh too has set targets for developing renewable energy resources to meet 5.0 per cent of the total power demand by 2015 and 10 per cent by 2020. According to Renewable Energy Policy of Bangladesh, the objectives are to harnessing the potential of renewable energy resources and dissemination of renewable energy technologies in rural, semi-urban and urban areas; enabling, encouraging, and facilitating both public and private sector investment in renewable energy projects; and training and for facilitating the use of renewable energy at every level of energy usage; and promoting development of local technology in the field of renewable energy. 

But there are still no comprehensive efforts in Bangladesh to implement the objectives of the Renewable Energy Policy. The government should focus more on renewable energy for additional power generation however small its contribution will be. 

China has expressed its intent to invest and help develop renewable energy in Bangladesh. An experts' team on renewable energy,Selecting the right solar panel cells for your solar power system is crucial. led by Xie Jin Shu, consultant for the division of coordination and scientific and technological equipment of Yunnan provincial energy administration, recently visited Bangladesh to explore new market. "We are here to realise the potential of the country's renewable energy sector," said Shu. "I think this is the right time for us to partner with Bangladesh for the development of the sector." He was speaking at a discussion with the leaders of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) at the FBCCI's office in the capital.Marking machines and laser marking machine for permanent part marking and product traceability. Shu said they will extend their all-out cooperation in the near future for the renewable energy sector. 

The part of the Department of Energy in charge of research funding,Solaronlamp provides the world with high-performance solar roadway and solar street lighting solutions. approved a $22 million grant for Duke to start working on the facility in 2011, Duke also added a further $22 million of their own to fund the entire project. 

The system of power storage was provided by Xtreme Power, who are based in Austin. Xtreme Power, who will also continue to manage the system, used mostly PowerCell batteries to construct the storage facility, but according to them, these batteries are less dangerous and recycled easier than regular PowerCell batteries. 

Being the biggest such facility, the project will also be studied and observed by Electric Power Research Institute with hopes of being able to apply the technology for an even wider range of purposes. If the system is successful, it could become the basis for such large storage facilities looking to provide steady power to the grid from renewable energy sources like wind and solar.
