State Minister for Energy, Vitality and Mineral Sources Nasrul Hamid has stated that the federal government is exploring choices like rooftop and floating solar energy crops as alternate options to land-based ones as a consequence of shortage of lands.
He stated it isn’t doable to arrange land-based large-scale photo voltaic crops as lands are getting used for agriculture and different obligatory functions.
The state minister made the remarks whereas presiding over the nearly held “Member Interventions” session of the twelfth meeting of the Worldwide Renewable Vitality Company (IRENA) on Saturday night.

Nasrul Hamid talked about that Bangladesh has been making all its efforts with restricted sources to advertise renewable power.
“Over 20 million individuals of the nation have been introduced underneath the electrical energy services by way of organising over six million photo voltaic dwelling techniques,” he added.
Furthermore, individuals of the distant areas are being given electrical energy by way of putting in 26 photo voltaic mini-grids whereas 2,000 diesel-run irrigation pumps had been transformed into solar-run pumps to cut back the usage of liquid fuels.
Nasrul stated presently the nation is producing 650MW electrical energy from photo voltaic power whereas eight grid-tied photo voltaic parks, having 231MW capability, had been arrange throughout the nation.
He stated the federal government has launched the web metering system to encourage rooftop photo voltaic whereas initiatives have been taken to make use of different sources of renewable power like wind, waste to generate electrical energy.
Initiatives had been undertaken to generate 245MW of electrical energy from wind whereas Dhaka North Metropolis Company signed a contract to arrange a 42.5MW waste to power plant.
The convention was attended by representatives from Zimbabwe, Colombia, India, US, el Salvador, Belgium, Norway, Uruguay, Canada, Indonesia, Singapore, Greece, Spain, China, Japan, Switzerland, Croatia, Turkmenistan, Serbia, Germany, France, Italy, Solar Marino, and Saudi Arabia.
