Load shedding won’t improve this year

Bangladesh’s efforts to increase the power generation capacity over the last year have failed to make a significant dent in reducing the intensity of load shedding in the peak demand-season of April-May.

Power Division officials say the power outage would be the same this year as last despite some improvement in mitigating the electricity supply shortage. This is due to a demand growth simultaneously with the improvement in supply situation. 

Gas supply to slide to a third of demand in 2030
