Power import from India to get costlier

The cost of importing electricity from India has increased. A review of the electricity import costs over the past five years shows that in the last fiscal year alone, the cost of imported electricity jumped by 2 taka 6 paisa per kilowatt-hour (unit). When questioned about this price increase, many attributed it to the start of coal power imports from Adani. The Adani Group's plant in Jharkhand was constructed solely for selling electricity to Bangladesh. It has been criticized for having slightly higher electricity prices compared to other imported coal-fired power plants in the country.

Why is Bangladesh fascinated in the renewable energy of the neighbor

The price of solar photovoltaic panels has decreased to 11 cents per watt in the global market. Adding incidental costs for inverters and infrastructure brings the cost to 14 cents per watt. Without any additional expenses for land acquisition and management, Bangladesh is seeing the potential for renewable energy production through solar power. Bangladesh is seeking to import electricity generated from renewable sources like Nepal, Bhutan, and India. But why? So, is Bangladesh paying more attention to buying electricity produced by renewable energy from its neighbors? It is not unusual to ask such a question.

Why do we feel need to close shops at 8pm when load shedding increases?

In China, with a population of 1.41 billion, it is mandatory to close shops and markets during the evening hours, which is strictly adhered to by everyone. Evening here refers to either 5 or 6 o'clock. Similar rules are followed in Europe and America as well. No transactions are allowed after evening hours, and shops must remain closed. Therefore, no industrialized country keeps markets open after evening. Then why can't we close shops at 8 PM? If shops close at 8 PM, the government has to intervene in a structured manner. When power distribution companies conduct campaigns, shops close at 8 PM. If the campaign stops, no one closes shops before 10 PM. On the other hand, the government only imposes restrictions on shop closure to increase load shedding.

Will the risks of LNG spot market persist?

Main source of the country's energy is natural gas. In addition to extraction from domestic mines, liquefied natural gas (LNG) is now imported. Over the past four years, one-third of the supplied gas has come from LNG. Gradually, the government is increasing the amount of imported gas. If oil and gas are not found in the Bay of Bengal, there is no alternative to imports. However, it is urgent to analyze the safety of the source of imports. The question arises: are we lagging behind in that area?
