Concentrating Solar Power and its Prospect in Bangladesh (2009)

This article from the University of Science and Technology, Dhaka, Bangladesh explores the potential of building a concentrating solar power plant (CSP) in Bangladesh, to overcome the crisis in the power sector.

Bangladesh has an average annual solar radiation of nearly 1,900kWh/m2, which is sufficient to operate a CSP plant. Studies foreseen that by 2015 the capital costs of the plant would become $3,800/kWe.

The article goes through the different technology possibilities, the power scenario in Bangladesh and a case study on a pilot CSP project of 1MWe in the District of Rajshahi.
