The vision of the draft policy is to develop an efficient, sustainable, secure, affordable, competitive, and environment-friendly power system across the country. The Government of Bangladesh (GoB) initially introduced the Bangladesh Renewable Energy Policy 2008 to promote the development and utilisation of renewable energy sources in the country. The policy was designed to support the country’s energy security, reduce its dependence on imported fossil fuels, and promote sustainable development. Recently, the Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Authority (SREDA) under the Power Division of the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources (MoPEMR) has initiated to revise the RE Policy 2008. As part of the initiative, a policy report has been developed with the title ‘Renewable Energy Policy (Draft) 2022’.
