Expansion of clean energy must for balanced development
Staff Correspondent: State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid yesterday said expansion of clean energy is a must for balanced development.
“Balance distribution of modern technology for increasing the use of renewable energy is required, keeping the environment safe,” he said this while speaking as the chief guest at a closing ceremony virtually.
Renewable Energy Efficiency Programme was held in collaboration of German government’s technical support with SDREA chairman Md Alauddin in the chair.
The state minister said the GIZ played a vital role for building awareness about renewable energy in the society.
“It is necessary to emphasis on efficiency and conservation of clean and renewable energy with coordination of technology, economic and overall development alongside the environment,” he said. Nasrul, however, said that the existing incentives on renewable energy will be continued.
