Bangladesh is one of the poorest countries in the world. Many people don’t have any access to energy supply. During the past years approximately four million small SolarHomeSystems have been installed to overcome this situation. Several investors worldwide financed these systems. Now the German Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW), the government of Bangladesh and Agency Infrastructure Development Company Limited (IDCOL in Dhaka) decided to start the new PURE Program. The program supports three types of systems with grants: PV Mini Grid, solar driven pumping systems and medium size biogas systems for electricity.

The consulting company Integration (München) won the tender of KfW. DGS is involved as key expert for PV systems. Work began in March 2016 and will run over four years. Project targets are:

  • Improvement and acceleration of the tender procedure for the three system types
  • Increase of the economic benefit from the systems
  • Increased consideration of ambient and social aspects, especially batteries used in the mini grids
  • Improvement of quality of components, installation and maintenance. Regarding the ambient conditions (Cyclone, tornado, rain period, salty air) this is a challenge, but solvable

The first work shop took place on May 19th and 20th 2016 in Dhaka. Many interviews with responsible persons of IDCOL, companies and institutes in Bangladesh were realized. The results were analyzed, trainings prepared for IDCOL personnel and the first tender batch which will start in 2017 is in preparation.

In May 2016 seven PV mini grids are installed, 11 under construction and 29 in preparation. Concerning the solar driven pumping systems: 123 are installed, 113 received the permission and their construction is in preparation.
