BGMEA, Green Power Sign Green Partnership
Green Power Limited, a renewable energy company, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA). The MoU aims to improve energy efficiency and encourage the adoption of green and clean energy sources in garment factories in Bangladesh.
According to a press release, former BGMEA vice president Md Moshiul Azam Shajaland and ANM Saifuddin, chair of the BGMEA Standing Committee on Labour and ILO Affairs, were present when BGMEA President Faruque Hassan and Green Power Managing Director Shaikh Ehsanul Habib signed the agreement at the BGMEA Complex.
Green Power will provide technical assistance to Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association member factories as part of this agreement, assisting them in adopting green and clean energy solutions such as solar power. The goal is to improve energy efficiency and promote environmentally friendly practices in the garment industry.
Green Power will conduct a reconnaissance survey of interested member factories as part of the collaboration to assess their potential for incorporating reliable, low-cost, and cleaner sources of power. Options such as solar power and battery energy storage systems will be investigated based on the factories' day-load curve.
With the factories' permission, the Green Power team will investigate the member factories' power consumption patterns and generate an 'Energy Audit Report.' This report will provide useful insights and recommendations for optimising energy consumption and incorporating sustainable energy solutions.
