Driving Bangladesh forward
The renewable energy sector, particularly solar, has the potential to provide a massive boost to Bangladesh’s economy. On the one hand, once solar power is set up, it is virtually free of cost. So going solar can drastically reduce energy costs for Bangladesh. A modern economy essentially runs on energy, thus, with energy costs down, we can gain a major economic advantage in global trade and commerce. On the other hand, the initial installation process of going solar will mean millions of new jobs for our people, particularly the youth and the rural poor. Besides, we must remember that renewable energy will help to save the environment, which we, as a country most vulnerable to climate change, desperately need.
