Abstract—The heartiest efforts of electricity generation and extending electrification for rural population by Bangladesh Government becoming blur as it is falling short to meet urban and industrial growth. In remote areas of Bangladesh, off-grid technologies in combination with sustainable financial management promise environment-friendly access to electricity at a lower cost than conventional technologies. Such remote communities have limited resources, technical short comings; so training on technical issues, facilitation to proper management, methods to optimise the distribution system and load appliances can have practical benefits. This paper investigates renewable energy resources of Bangladesh and explores rural electrification opportunities using hybrid mini-grid system linked to existing and new economic opportunities.
