Bangladesh PSMP delay forces rethink of nation’s energy future

July 12, 2021

Energy Tracker: 

June was the month when the new Power Sector Master Plan in Bangladesh should have been introduced. The public anticipated the plan because it should have addressed the country’s power generation overcapacity issue. However, the PSMP had been delayed, and Bangladesh is now back to the drawing board. With eyes set on a renewable energy future but feet stuck in a fossil fuels-dominated energy sector, Bangladesh has vital decisions to make. Adequately addressing the excessive power capacity can speed up the renewable energy revolution for the nation.
