Total Energy consumption

Energy consumption per capita is 0.25 toe, including around 340 kWh of electricity (2017).

Although the country's overall consumption is increasing quickly, driven by rapid economic growth, it is 30% lower than the GDP (4.4%/year compared to 6.5%/year for the GDP since 2010).

Gas is the main energy source consumed (57%), ahead of biomass (24%) and oil (14%) (2017).

Crude oil production

Most of the oil is imported, as national production only covers around 5% of the country's needs. The imports mainly consist of oil products (close to 80%). Oil product imports have more than doubled since 2000.

The country has a limited refining capacity of 35 500 bbl/d distributed in 2 refineries: Chittagong (33 000 bbl/d, commissioned in 1968) and Mongla (2 500 bbl/d, commissioned ...

Renewable in % electricity production

In its Power System Master Plan 2016, the government set a target to reach 2.5 GW of renewable capacity in 2021, and 3.9 GW in 2041. It introduced incentive measures to mobilise the private sector. This target is in line with its NDC target to increase the share of renewables in total power generation to 10 % in 2021.

In 2012, the country implemented the Solar and Renewable Energy ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In its National Determined Contributions (NDC), Bangladesh announced it aims to reduce GHG emissions by 40% (48 MtCO2eq) by 2030 compared to a BAU scenario, of which 15% (or 36 MtCO2) assumes international support.

CO2 emissions from energy combustion have risen steadily and more than doubled since 2005.
