The project will increase energy efficiency and reduce losses in order to achieve a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The project will be implemented by the Bangladesh Rural Electrification Board (BREB) and the West Zone Power Distribution Co Ltd, said a press release.

ERD Secretary Fatima Yasmin and Carolin Gassner, Director South Asia, KfW Development Bank and Anirban Kundu, Director, KfW Bangladesh signed the Loan Agreement.
