‘Renewables will be the main energy sources’

Nasrul Hamid, State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources on Tuesday said that solar power will be the foremost energy source of the future, said a press release issued by the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources.

The State Minister was speaking at the plenary session titled ‘The global status quo: Challenges and Opportunities’ on closing day of the ‘16th Doha Forum’ held at Doha, the capital of the gulf state of Qatar from May 21-23.

Nasrul said that the Gulf States have abundant sunlight and land and they have the best opportunities to utilize sunlight for producing electricity.

These areas could work as the energy hub and supply solar based electricity to other countries, he said.

Nasrul said that Bangladesh put strong emphasis on regional grid connectivity. He said that Bangladesh has already started importing electricity from India and attempts are made to bring electricity from Bhutan.

This is how the usage of renewable energy sources could be increased through regional cooperation, he said.

Nasrul said that if proper investment is made for inventing newer technologies then the renewable energy sources could be made more affordable and available.

He said that if ‘Post Petroleum fund’ of Saudi Arabia or International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) or Qatar Investment Group provides more fund for green energy sources then initiatives for newer technologies in this sector would be increased.
