Govt to formulate uniform power generation policy

The government is going to formulate a uniform power generation policy, accommodating all existing policies in power sector under a single umbrella, to help develop an overall investment guideline.

The power division has taken a decision in this regard with power division’s senior secretary Dr Ahmad Kaikaus in the chair recently. The power division also formed a seven member committee headed by Power Cell Director General Mohammed Hossain to carry out the task.

The government had introduced the Private Sector Power Generation Policy of Bangladesh (PSPGP) in 1996 and formulated a policy guideline for power purchase from captive power plant (CPP), policy guidelines for enhancement of private participation in the power sector (commercial power policy) and guidelines for small power plants (SPP) in private sector to attract the public and private sector investment here.

The investors can get guidelines on power evacuation, grid access, tariff, fuel supply and others conditionality from the policies to implement the power plants in public and private sector. But, the policy and guidelines will be reviewed considering present situation, said sources who attended the meeting.

The meeting said the PSPGC contributed a lot to encourage private sector investment in power sector. But the captive power policy and the commercial power policy could not attract investments, it said.

So the government has decided to update the policies and guidelines and accommodate all into a uniform power generation policy, official sources said.
