One of the main barriers prevailing renewable energy technologies introduction in Bangladesh is the information barrier. Decision makers, educational institutions and local companies have so far little or no access to information about Renewable Energy (RE), their prospects, economics and technology. The Renewable Energy Information Network (REIN), being implemented under the Sustainable Rural Energy (SRE) project funded by UNDP and executed by Local Government Engineering Department (LGED), aims to remove the aforementioned barrier through an information platform with a comprehensive scope and long-term perspective.
REIN functions through its web-based interface with renewable energy related information tailored specifically to meet the needs of the general public, enthusiasts, energy planners, project developers, researchers, entrepreneurs, students and all other relevant organizations & institutions in developing renewable energy projects and promotion of renewable energy utilization in Bangladesh. It is expected that especially schools and universities can immensely benefit from the information services provided by REIN.
