The Solar Energy Revolution Everyone’s Ignoring… Is In Bangladesh

The Solar Energy Revolution Everyone’s Ignoring… Is In Bangladesh

Sadly, Grameen Shakti somehow wasn’t even on my radar until I found out that it was a recent Zayed Future Energy Prize finalist . And it probably still wouldn’t be if it weren’t for that? Honestly, how does an organization providing solar to about 10 million fly under the radar? My hunch is that there are a few reasons: 1) these are very small systems, so they don’t as quickly add up to “a lot” even though they are providing electricity to many more people than solar is in the US; 2) the small systems might not even be counted in many global assessments of solar power capacity and generation; 3) Bangladesh is an infrequently discussed country in global news, whether it’s cleantech news, massive flooding news , tragic global warming news , or otherwise. But without a doubt, a solar revolution is afoot in Bangladesh, and it’s a big deal.
