Solar solutions put on display in Green Energy Expo 2013

“Green Energy Expo 2013” with the slogan “Acceleration of Solar Mini Grid System in Bangladesh”, a three-day renewable energy technology fair that was held in the capital’s Ruposhi Bangla Hotel, ended on Monday.

The Infrastructure Development Company Ltd (IDCOL), a non-bank financial institution, organised the fair to celebrate the installation of 2m solar home systems.

In the fair, inaugurated by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, IDCOL also launched a project to install one million improved cooking stoves.

With an aim to promote energy efficient technology, as well as green energy in the country, 45 different renewable energy related organisations displayed their products at the fair.

A number of environment friendly and energy efficient systems, including solar home systems, solar irrigation pumps, improved cooking stoves, biogas plants and energy efficient brick kiln plants were displayed at the fair.

Khademul Islam, 45, who was talking to the staff of Rural Services Foundation (RSF) in its stall about setting a biogas plant in his house, told the Dhaka Tribune that he decided to set up a biogas plant to help his family keep clean and ensure the proper utilisation of biomass.

The fair displayed different sizes of biogas plants starting from 2-3 hours capacity to 10-12 hours capacity.

A customer had to ensure his possession of at least 6 cows in his house, a token of sufficient raw materials, to buy a 4-5 hour capacity biogas plant, sources said.

Meanwhile, German Technical Cooperation (GIZ) displayed the technology of improved cooking stoves, which consumes lower biomass and produce less smoke.

The cost of a double burner improved cooking stove is Tk1200, while the single burner is priced at Tk850.

GIZ has been trying to enhance the entrepreneur of this improved cooking stoves technology with cooperation of the Department of Environment.

It already has around .15m entrepreneurs across the country, who engaged themselves to sell the Improved Cooking Stoves in rural Bangladesh.
