WASHINGTON, April 26, 2017—The World Bank today approved $59 million in financing to help Bangladesh meet the increasing demand for electricity by improving the reliability and efficiency of the entire power system, from electricity generation to transmission.
The Power System Reliability and Efficiency Improvement Project will reduce power outages and load-shedding by about 60 percent, as well as cut electricity generation costs significantly. This will be achieved by modernizing the electricity generation processes and practices, with installation of new software and hardware as well as upgrades to the transmission system. The project will also lower greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the use of carbon-intense fuel in electricity generation.
"In the last five years, Bangladesh has almost doubled its electricity generation capacity to meet increasing demand for electricity. Yet, our 2017 Doing Business Report still ranked it 187 out of 190 economies on the Getting Electricity indicator," said Qimiao Fan, World Bank Country Director for Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal. "The project will help address bottlenecks and modernize the overall power system. This will reduce outages, save fuel in power generation, and help bring affordable and reliable electricity to households and businesses."
