Decarbonisation of energy systems of South Asian developing economies through regional collaborations

Lead Institution: Heriot-Watt University

Project Summary

South Asian countries such as India, Nepal and Bhutan are currently developing plans for increasing renewable energy penetration. However, other rapidly developing countries, such as Bangladesh, appear to be moving towards a fossil fuel-based model of development. Recent policy change in India has opened the avenue towards regional energy collaboration between Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Bhutan. The objective of this research is to explore the potential of electricity import from India, Nepal and Bhutan from renewables to aid the decarbonisation of Bangladesh’s rapidly accelerating electricity sector.
