The World Coal Association (WCA) continues with the publication of the country-specific factsheets and considers the role of coal in Bangladesh. 

Bangladesh has recently experienced robust economic growth, but chronic power shortages and frequent blackouts have caused substantial economic losses and limited development opportunities. Insufficient gas supply has led Bangladesh’s government to diversify energy sources for power generation, including the deployment of cleaner coal technologies.
