Bangladesh today faces a different future than it did decades ago when relatively abundant natural gas seemed to be the key to prosperity. A relatively small negative growth impact of increased energy prices can be easily counteracted by an economy-wide increase in energy efficiency or subsidized renewable energy generation.
The government has embarked on a well-planned policy to generate more energy through higher public and private investment, reduce system loss to the minimum and harness natural gas, solar power, atomic power and hydroelectric resources. The government has also pushed for a number of supporting policies and reforms including incentives for Renewable Energy and Sustainable development.
Diversification of the power sector fuel mix by introducing coal provides good macroeconomic indicators but results in higher carbon emissions. Investing the gas revenue in physical and social infrastructure provides the best macroeconomic indicators. This best policy option, however, further increases carbon emissions. Impacts of these different policies in terms of increased household income are more or less equally distributed among different household groups. Most of the attractive policy options have the drawback of higher carbon emissions, and supplementary policies and suitable technology adoption should play a balancing role.
