15% energy efficiency by 2020: Nasrul

State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid on Wednesday said that Bangladesh has a plan to ensure attaining of 15% energy efficiency by 2020 and 20% by 2030 in the seventh five year plan.

To ensure that energy efficiency, there is no option but to broaden the areas under energy security, said Nasrul while speaking as the chief guest during a stakeholders validation workshop on National Energy Audit Regulation  at the conference room of Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Authority (SREDA).

He said that initially the price of energy efficient machineries are high but in the long run those are proven to be more efficient.

Nasrul said if energy efficiency can be attained, then the production price will be reduced too.

He said that if 15% energy efficiency can be attained by 2020, then it will save around 7,482 gigawatt-hour of electricity which is equivalent to the electricity produced in a 2,000MW power plant for one year.

Presenting the key-note paper at the occasion, Siddique Zobair, member of SREDA said, around 54% energy is used in the industrial sector. If carefully used, then 31% more energy efficiency could be attained from here.

Dr Ahmad Kaikaus, Power Division acting secretary said, there must be a guideline for energy audit. He urged to provide important suggestions from the workshop so that those would help formulate the guideline.

Md Tajul Islam, Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources also spoke on the occasion.
