Dhaka University, Bangladesh understands the value and need for harnessing sustainable energy sources.    The University recognizes that “the whole world today relies heavily on fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas for its energy. The continuous depletion of reserve of these fuels as well as the fluctuation in the price of crude oil has made energy independence imperative. To develop sustainable energy systems and solutions for the future energy crises, the University of Dhaka has established the Institute of Renewable Energy.”  This institute seeks to promote research in practice in the field of innovative sustainable renewable energy solutions and has developed an Energy Park for renewable energy research.
