State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid on Saturday underscored the need for an integrated master plan for infrastructure development. “It’s a demand for the time to formulate a comprehensive master plan for infrastructure development aimed at ensuring sustainable development in the country,” he said at a ‘Meet the Energy Reporters’ programme onboard a vessel during a Dhaka-Munshiganj river cruise. The state minister said the electric car market share is on the rise globally and in the future, people will ride on electric recharge vehicles, “but a guideline is yet to be prepared in this regard.” Responding to a question, Nasrul said prices of electricity or gas will not be a burden for common people if prices of gas or energy are adjusted upward as per the demand of the time. “We will supply energy or power at an affordable price,” he said, adding that the Middle Eastern countries along with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia have expressed their interests for the first time to invest in Bangladesh. “New foreign investment is coming for setting up power plants, oil refinery and petrochemical industries in Bangladesh. Bangladesh and the UAE signed MoUs (memorandums of understanding) for long time supply of LNG and for developing a land-based LNG receiving terminal,” he added. Referring to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s recent visit to Abu Dhabi and the UAE, Nasrul said an MoU was signed for an integrated 800 MW-1000 MW LNG power plant to be constructed in two phases along with implementing a 100 MW solar power project. Answer another question, he said Bangladesh needs $70 billion investment for generating 60,000 MW power and another $30 billion for development of energy sector within 2041. The state minister said steps will be taken to extract local coal by using modern technology and protecting environment and consultation will be made with local people so that they are not affected in any way. Chairman of Forum for Energy Reporters’ Bangladesh (FERB) Arun Karmakar presided over the event while Executive Director Sadrul Hassan moderated. Later, the state minister inaugurated the newly developed website of the organisation. Responding to another question, Nasrul said the government is working to supply uninterrupted and quality electricity to consumers. “We encourage people to set up rooftop solar panel in urban areas for promoting net metering system.” Net metering allows individual solar panel owner to supply power to the grid and adjust their electricity bills.

Three day long BIFFL green convention and expo ends on a high note
October 7, 2018 Sunday 10:48 PM By News Desk, energynewsbd.com
The three day long BIFFL Green, PPP Convention and Expo 2018 ended both in Dhaka and Chattagram on Saturday and Sunday respectively. The concluding ceremony of the third edition of the annual event which has been visited by eminent consultants, solution providers, enterpreneurs, financiers and officials of BIFFL was organised at Bangabandhu International Convention Center in Dhaka and GEC convention center in Chattagram. The convention and expos were launched in Dhaka on October 4 and on October 5 to promote green and energy efficient technology as well as public private partnership for ensuring sustainable infrastructure development in the country. In the closing sessions both in Dhaka and Chattogram SM Formanul Islam, the executive director and CEO of BIFFL, attended as the chief guest and handed over crests to participating organisations and the best stall makers. He also expressed deep gratitude to the participants who showcased their products and service in the expos, event manager and the organising team of BIFFL. Formanul also wishes to arrange the event at wider scale in future. BIFFL organised the convention and expo as a part of its nationwide promotion of widespread usage of energy efficient and environment friendly technology in energy intensive industrial sector and infrastructure development works that lead to saving both in power and energy. The convention and expo brought together the renowned environment experts, consultants and solution providers, entrepreneurs, financiers, officials of different ministries of the government as well as the representatives of development partners. During the event, three seminars were held on ‘prospects and challenges of PPP in Bangladesh’, ‘energy efficiency and green building: two new frontiers towards sustainable development in Bangladesh’ and ‘A must for green growth: challenges and opportunities’ where participating experts, consultants, entrepreneurs, financiers and interested people attended and expressed their opinions. SM Formanul Islam moderated the seminars and discussion sessions.   Secretary of BIFFL Mohammad Khan said energy and power is obligatory for the development and industrialisation. In Bangladesh, considering the density of population, highly increasing need of power and energy, geographic position and climatic nature and the dependency on agriculture, it is hard to avoid power generation from fossil fuel or coal, which contributes to the greenhouse effect and global warming. However, we can go parallelly for energy efficient technology to save power and energy and generation of green (renewable) energy to our greatest possible extent. At the same time, we need to promote the PPP to facilitate infrastructure development of the country engaging the private sector. BIFFL has been organising the green convention and expo for the last 3 years and experiencing huge responses from the technology providers home and abroad, local entrepreneurs, technology users and even the common people and students. Though started in Dhaka initially, BIFFL plans to arrange the convention and expo in all divisional cities in future. The three day convention and expo provided a platform for the participants to share experiences from global best practices and collate recommendations for the policy makers to formulate enabling policies and regulations towards fostering the green movement in Bangladesh.

BIFFL helping push forward energy sector, PPP initiatives
October 4, 2018 Thursday 8:34 PM By Staff Correspondent, energynewsbd.com
Finance Minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhit on Thursday said Bangladesh Infrastructure Finance Fund Limited is playing an important role in taking the energy sector and Public Private Partnership forward. The minister was inaugurating the three-day Green PPP Convention and Expo-2018 as the chief guest at the Bangabandhu International Conference Center in Dhaka from October 4 to 6 and in Chattogram from October 5 to 7 organised by BIFFL. BIFFL, a leading financier of infrastructure projects in the country, is organising the event as part of its nationwide awareness campaign for sustainable Infrastructure development in Bangladesh. The event includes three national seminars followed by plenary discussions to be participated by the experts, development partners, bankers and regulators. Considering the global context, the Finance Minister said infrastructure deficit is very important because this may hold up the growth process in the Asian region. He noted that deficit in infrastructure is a matter of concern for the whole world. Besides, the Finance Minister said the impact of climate change is a matter of serious concern for the whole world and unfortunately for Bangladesh, it’s much more of a concern, because Bangladesh is not one of those who are generating difficulties for the climate change. “But, we are a big sufferer of climate change and are being affected by other nations. So, we have to care for green development in a very special manner…I think in green development, we are the leader in the world as we began attending to this problem well before the new fund or new sort of institutions that came into existence,” he said. Muhith, however, said only good performance in this sector is not sufficient “because, we also need the cooperation of the global activists in the green sector.” In order to save lives on earth, he said, one needs to be extremely conscious of green development. In terms of operationalizing the Public Private Partnership (PPP) initiatives, he said, Bangladesh can be proud of the record in the PPP sector, as the emphasis that the government has put on this particular sector has been quite fruitful. Turning again to the issue of infrastructure, the Finance Minister said except the power sector, infrastructure is still an area of deficit in the country and much more work is needed in order to materialize the objectives of being a prosperous, peaceful and developed country by 2041 as envisioned by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. He also that the country’s power generation capacity would reach 30,000 MW by the year 2024 and this would have a positive impact on the economy. “Now the power generation capacity is substantially more than the demand of the country… we should have a power generation capacity of 30,000 MW by 2024 and I do not think that the energy requirement of the country would be anywhere near 30,000 MW by that time. So, it’s a matter of great satisfaction for us and also for the economy,” he said. The exposition, third of its kind, is aimed at promoting green and energy efficient technology and Public Private Partnership (PPP) for sustainable infrastructure development in the country. Secretary in Charge of the Finance Division Abdur Rouf Talukder, BIFFL executive director and CEO SM Formanul Islam, Finance Division additional secretary Md Ekhlasur Rahman, Power Division additional secretary Rahamat Ullah Mohd. Dastagir, Chief Representative of JICA Bangladesh Hitoshi Hirata, Senior Financial Sector Specialist AKM Abdullah among others, were present at the inaugural session of the convention. SM Farmanul Islam handed over Tk 64 crore as last year`s profit in the hand of Finance Minister Muhit during the inaugural ceremony. This year around 100 organisations from Germany, Japan, China and host Bangladesh will display technologies and products including green brick, energy efficiency, renewable energy, green building or industry materials, waste treatment technology. The expo will be open for trade and public visitors from 10 am to 6 pm.

The object of the convention and expo is to promote the widespread usage of green technologies in energy intensive industries,” he added. The event includes three national seminars followed by plenary discussions to be participated by the experts, development partners, bankers, regulators and users as well as a three day expo, said Executive Director Formanul Islam. He also said, “The preferred technologies for demonstration include green brick, energy efficiency, renewable energy, green building or industry, waste treatment etc.” BIFFL would also like to highlight the attractiveness of green endeavors to the potential suppliers, entrepreneurs and financiers, he mentioned. In the last year BIFFL organised a Green Convention and Expo-2017 to promote green technologies. Being encouraged by its success and recognising the importance of such events in promoting the use of green technologies for sustainable development, BIFFL has decided to make it an annual event with wider scopes.
