Bangladesh: Vision 2021 for Power Sector

To provide access to quality electricity to all people at an affordable price by the year 2021.

 

Bangladesh Power Sector at a Glance

Generation Capacity (With Captive) : 14,332 MW
Highest Generation : 9036 MW (30 June 2016)
Transmission line : 10,248 CKM
Distribution Line : 3,99,000 KM
Total consumers : 20.34 Million
Access to Electricity : 78%

 

The Future of Power Sector in brief
To realize Vision 2021, the government of Bangladesh (GOB) has adopted Power System Master Plan (PSMP) 2010 as the basis for future projects to be undertaken in this sector. As per PSMP 2010, electricity generation would reach to 39,000 MW by 2030 with an additional generation of 36,000 MW. Following table shows the total generation plan by the year 2030:

 

New Generation Target by 2030
Fuel Type Capacity (MW)
Domestic Coal 9850
Imported Coal 7800
Natural Gas/ LNG 8956
Cross-Border Power 3500
Liquid Fuel 3428
Renewable Energy 2000
Hydro 500
Total 36034

 

The proportion of each category is shown in the following pie chart:

To reach this new power supply to customers, major expansion of transmission and distribution networks would be necessary. Alongside, the Master Plan lays emphasis on energy efficiency, conservation and demand side management.

 

Investment Potentials in Bangladesh Power Sector


Bangladesh has been experiencing an annual average GDP growth rate of 6 percent for almost two decades. Even during the global economic turmoils, it has managed a growth rate of over 6 percent, helped by robust domestic and foreign demands in the recent past and steady flow of remittances for nonresidents. It’s the second largest garment exporter in the world.  Its macro fundamentals are sound and the rating agencies have held on to their assessments.


Bangladesh is an investor friendly country. There has never been an instance nationalization of FDI nor any case of default in payment. Its incentive package for FDI and for power sector in particular, is one of the most competitive. Its capital account is freely convertible for FDI. The Independent Power Policy of Bangladesh has been able to attract FDI since 1990s and the track records on all counts have been excellent.
From GOB’s power sector Road Map, following investment potentials can be identified:

 

 

  • Coal based power plants, including secured access to coal supply
  • Natural gas/LNG based power plants
  • Renewable energy projects  
  • Cross-border power projects including  Hydro power plants
  • Projects to enhance energy efficiency, energy conservation and DSM
  • Projects for transmission and distribution capacity expansion
  • US$ 40 billion investment will be required for  new generation
  • US$ 8 billion would be required for transmission network

 

Bangladesh-India Friendship Power Company Ltd. (BIFPC) requires US$ 1.00 billion investment in 1320 MW Coal Based Power Plant in Khulna.
