ESI Director Professor S.K. Chou was recently invited to participate as an invited panellist in the “International Best Practices in Power & Energy Sector: Lessons for South Asia and Bangladesh”. This seminar was jointly organised by the Government of Bangladesh (GoB), Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resource (MoPEMR), and Institute for Policy, Advocacy and Governance (IPAG), on December 10, 2016 in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

In curated discussions on the learnings from international best practices in the power and energy sectors, Professor Chou discussed on international best practices with the focus on energy efficiency measures, smart grids and demand management as implemented in Singapore, energy market integration, and initiatives to accelerate green energy in the grid to strengthen the process of governance, policy formulation, regulatory framework, and promotion of cleaner energy for sustainable development of the energy sector in Bangladesh.

Professor Chou along with Mr. Hari. M.P, a research associate at ESI contributed a chapter, “Lessons From International Experiences for Energy Market Reform in Bangladesh”, in a book titled “International Best Practices in Power and Energy Sector: Lessons for Bangladesh and South Asia”. The book was published to provide relevant case studies; key benchmarks that would help the stakeholders learn from global best practices in this sector. The book was formally unveiled and presented at the seminar to delegates, policy makers, and participants from the industry.
