Riverine Bangladesh is utilizing wind energy in the sailboats from ancient time. Electricity generation or water pumping system from wind turbine has not started yet. The Bangladesh Meteorological department has wind speed measuring stations in towns and cities. Data from earlier measurements and analysis of upper air data by CWET India show that wind energy resource of Bangladesh is not good enough (>7 m/s) for grid connected wind parks. At present, several wind resource assessment program is ongoing in the country. From the previous studies it can be inferred that the small wind turbines can be installed in the coastal regions of the country...more>>

Recently, several small wind generators have been installed by BRAC (11 small wind turbines in various coastal sites) and Grameen Shakti (two wind generators of 300 W and 1 KW at its Chakoria Shrimp Farm). These are small DC operation type systems supplying power to target groups to improve their quality of life. Their results are not well documented. Grameen Shakti has recently installed 4 small wind generators (3xl.5KW + ONE 10 KW) in Barguna district (coastal south). They are planning to develop these stations into hybrid systems later, first with diesel and then with solar pv, to maximize the energy output and then study the cost economics. Their final quantitative results would be awaited with great interest...more>>
