Find Electricity and Power expertise in Bangladesh
Bangladesh has an installed electricity generating capacity of around 4.68 gigawatts (GW), of which over 90% is thermal (mainly natural-gas-fired), and the rest hydroelectric. The sector is open to private sector participation at all levels. In 2010 the country signed a deal to import electricity from India. Despite this, electricity shortages have been common in the country for many years, due largely to infrastructural inefficiencies. The electricity supply in Dhaka is maintained by two organisations: the Dhaka Electric Supply Authority (DESA) and the Dhaka Electric Supply Company (DESCO). When it comes to power distribution beyond the capital, the Power Development Board, Rural Electrification Board, Power Grid Company of Bangladesh and the Rural Power Company Limited operate on various levels. The Rural Electrification Board (REB) is in charge of managing the delicate issue of electricity in rural areas.
