Huawei Applied sciences and the BGMEA have signed a memorandum of understanding to arrange rooftop photo voltaic methods on 4,000 garment factories. The deal will see Huawei arrange 2 GW of rooftop photo voltaic capability in complete. The entire factories are owned by BGMEA members.
Mixed, the rooftop methods will generate round 2,600 GWh of inexperienced electrical energy per 12 months upon completion. The BGMEA will regulate the method and function a communicative bridge between Huawei and the manufacturing facility house owners.
“Vitality effectivity, renewable power and carbon footprint discount have been one of many core areas of concern for BGMEA to facilitate sustainable progress and keep competitiveness of the trade in the long term,” stated Faruque Hassan, the president of the BGMEA.
Pan Junfeng, the chief government of Huawei Applied sciences (Bangladesh), stated demand for electrical energy is rising within the Bangladeshi attire sector.
“Huawei will work with BGMEA to meet the need of extra energy provide by way of inexperienced options (solar energy),” stated Pan, including that this may assist to cut back extra energy provide strain on the nationwide grid.
Bangladesh has the best variety of “inexperienced factories” on the earth, based on the US Inexperienced Constructing Council. It says that round 500 extra attire factories within the nation at the moment are ready for certification.
Bangladesh at the moment has the capability to generate 948 MW of electrical energy from renewables. The nation now faces a severe electrical energy disaster, as many energy crops stay shut down as a result of shortages of imported oil and fuel.
