Experts at a workshop suggested re-fixing the target of solar power generation to 30,000 MW by 2041 instead of current target of 40,000 MW and linking it with other national plans like Delta Plan 2100, reports UNB.

They made the recommendation while discussing the "Draft National Solar Energy Road Map: 2021-41" at the workshop, organized by Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Authority (Sreda) at office on Sunday.

They also said the plan should be 20,000 MW power generation instead of 30,000 MW from solar energy by 2030.

"Target of 40,000 MW power generation is an ambitious plan. Any plan has to be realistic considering current and future perspective", said eminent energy expert Dr M Tamim .

The workshop was also addressed by Power Cell Director General Mohammad Hossain, former member of Sreda Siddique Zobair, and President of Bangladesh Solar and Renewable Energy Association Dipal Barua.

UNDP-funded Sreda's project consultant Sharier Ahmed Chowdhury made a presentation on the Draft National Solar Energy Road Map: 2021-41 while Sreda Chairman and Additional Secretary of Power Division Mohammad Alauddin presided over the function.

Making a detail presentation on the roadmap, Shahrier Ahmed Chow-dhury said there is huge potentials of generating solar energy by setting up plants on reclaimed lands, especially in the country's char areas.
