Nasrul sought Germany’s help for solar power

State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid on Tuesday sought Germany’s help in producing solar electricity.

Nasrul sought this cooperation when Dr Thomas Prinz, German Ambassador to Bangladesh paid a visit to State Minister’s office at the secretariat with a six member delegation.

The State Minister said that Germany is a trusted friend of Bangladesh. It can aid us through partnership in developing human resource, training, knowledge transfer load dispatch seller, digitization, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), power plant installation and transmission.

He also said that aside from financial and technical cooperation, Bangladesh also wants German investment in Bangladesh.

Nasrul praised German organization GIZ’s role in popularizing renewable energy usage in Bangladesh. He made a request to GIZ and KFW to take realistic attempt in making electricity from waste. He also sought German cooperation for solar power generation.   

He said that Bangladesh is going to establish solar park because it believes that solar energy will be the energy of future.

The State Minister said that it is necessary to stop procrastination in implementing a project. He said that Bangladesh laid a plan to provide electricity throughout the country by 2018, that’s why all necessary work has to be completed quickly.

The German ambassador said that the German company Siemens has been working in Bangladesh since the 60’s. He said that Germany is keen to invest in Bangladeshi infrastructure and energy sector.

He said that both the countries can create a ‘working group’. The German Ambassador introduced Eckhard Heinz, head of Development Cooperation Department of German Embassy as the focal point and said that he would take necessary measures if any situation occurs. 

During the meet, David Konze, Director of KFW, David Hancock, Program Manager of GIZ, Siddique Zobair, Member of Sustainable and Renewable Energy Authority (SREDA) and Shamsul Hasan Mia, Chairman of Power Development Board (PDB) were present among others.
