So­lar Leader

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

Bangladesh has in­stalled the highest num­ber of So­lar Home Sys­tems ( SHS) in the world. Ac­cord­ing to ‘Re­new­ables 2017 Global Sta­tus Re­port’, Bangladesh has more than 4 mil­lion units in­stalled, be­com­ing the largest SHS mar­ket world­wide. Cur­rently, al­most 3 per cent of all power gen­er­ated in the coun­try comes from so­lar power, in­clud­ing other forms of re­new­able en­ergy. Bangladesh is also one of the top five coun­tries to have in­stalled clean cook­ing stoves and do­mes­tic bio­gas plants. Thanks to steady growth in de­ploy­ment of so­lar sys­tems, the num­ber of jobs in Bangladesh has been in­creased by 10 per cent.
