For a more energy-efficient future

For a more energy-efficient future
With summer almost upon us, it is important that the government thinks ahead of the potential energy crisis this inevitably leads to every year. As we know, summer heralds the onslaught of repeated load-shedding, especially in rural areas. To that end, creating more efficient avenues for electricity production is crucial. One such example is the Power Development Board’s MoU with the Narayanganj City Corporation, which seeks to convert 500 metric tons of solid waste into electricity. This is the kind of innovative energy solution that our nation needs moving forward, solutions which harness the power of renewability. Also worth noting is that the initiative succeeds in fostering an ethos of green energy, which is essential in combating the effects of climate change -- to which Bangladesh is particularly vulnerable. The president’s recent visit to New Delhi, where he sought global support for solar energy, is emblematic of the fact that, in this regard, Bangladesh stands on the right side of history. Renewable sources of energy are undoubtedly the future, and the government would do well to ensure that our collective national policy reflects such an outlook. While initiatives such as the one in Narayanganj are a good example of harnessing new innovations to quell a national problem, we also need to think of solutions at a policy level: For example, taxation of fossil fuels has become almost essential as industries continue to contribute to the overall increase in pollution. Bangladesh has always stood in the front-lines in the fight against climate change, and renewable sources of energy provide us with the opportunity to not only reduce pollution and keep climate change in check, but to also provide clean energy to the people of this country.
