Bangladesh - Energy assessment status report (Inglês)

The major energy problems in Bangladesh are the high cost of oil imports to meet the country's energy needs, about 60 percent of export earnings in recent years, and declining resources of wood and other traditional fuels estimated to supply roughly two-thirds of total energy consumption. This status report briefly outlines significant developments in the energy sector that have occurred since 1981, and in particular the actions taken by the Government of Bangladesh (GOB) to implement major recommendations made by the Energy Assessment of 1982. The report also reviews ongoing technical assistance to the energy sector by the international donor community and identifies some of the priorities for further technical assistance to the energy sector.
