The Government of Bangladesh established a national nodal institution—Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Authority (SREDA)—in 2012 for coordinating and monitoring the entire spectrum of green and clean energy development. SREDA is dedicated to promoting and sustaining Renewable Energy (RE) investments, plans, programs, and measures; and the demand-side Energy Efficiency and Conservation (EE&C) in Bangladesh. By materializing SREDA in its full potential, Bangladesh has the potential to reduce its fossil fuel dependence, to improve its energy security and to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
SREDA is the main host on behalf of the Bangladesh Government for the Conference. SREDA will ensure all support from government including permissions and visa support letter for the international participants. SREDA will also be responsible for inviting and confirming all national stakeholders and inviting the Guests of honour during opening and closing sessions.
Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency is one of the priority areas of German Development Cooperation in Bangladesh. The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Programme (REEEP II) is a joint undertaking between the Bangladesh Ministry of Power, Energy, and Mineral Resources and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The programme is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. REEEP II started in November 2018 and will continue till October 2021. The Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Authority (SREDA) is REEEP II’s government counterpart.
The Programme is working to promote renewable energy, as well as efficient use and conservation of energy by building the capacities of relevant stakeholders and improving the framework conditions towards market uptake. Together with public, private and civil society actors, the programme will provide strategic and implementation support for a national level awareness campaign on energy efficiency and conservation. On behalf of SREDA, REEEP II will provide organisational and management support for the Conference. REEEP II is also responsible for report writing and knowledge management of the conference
As a service provider with worldwide operations in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH works jointly with its partners to develop effective solutions that offer people better prospects and sustainably improve their living conditions.
The GIZ internal sector network TUEWAS (Transport, Environment, Energy and Water in Asia) was established in Bonn, Germany in 2002, as a platform for regional professional exchange and cooperation between GIZ experts in Asia and at head office. Currently, TUEWAS connects over 50 projects across 16 Asian countries in the field of transport, environment, energy and water. TUEWAS Energy Efficiency (EE) Working Group promotes the exchange of knowledge and experience in energy efficiency in Asia. It is a forum for discussion and mutual support on improving energy efficiency particularly in the building and industry sector through targeted technical interventions as well as development and implementation of policy instruments for institutionalization of energy efficiency. By means of activities such as collaboration mapping, available know how on energy efficiency is identified and shared among the members.
