With years of experience and expertise, BSREA endeavoured to create an unique platform to turn each village into a role model for sustainable development in line with the Bangladesh Government’s ambitions. The aim is not to turn villages into cities, rather to ensure that the equivalent comfort and facilities of city life will be available in villages without harming the nature and environment. As a smart village, it will have all provisions of renewable energy and energy efficiency to ensure energy security in most efficient way. Bangladesh is already well acclaimed for its largest off grid solar programme. The proposed initiative will not only reduce internal migration from village to city, but also enhance quality of sustainable economic growth. A stakeholder event was organized by BSREA in April 2019 in collaboration with SREDA and development partners, including GIZ and IDCOL.
