Event Profile

Bangladesh is currently generating around 560 MW of electricity from renewable energy sources, which is just 2.95% of total power generation. The government is now eyeing a target of generating 10% of its power from renewable resources by 2020. The Social & Economic development of Bangladesh sees huge progress in recent years. There is no alternate to keep the cities active and productive for sake of economy. Some of those cities are struggling to survive but on the other hand some of the cities transformed to SMART CITIES.
