An Economic Investigation of Energy Market Structure, Energy Reform Policy, Energy Use and Economic Growth in Bangladesh
Bangladesh considers energy as a pre requisite for her technological, societal and economic growth. However, energy security in Bangladesh is threatened by spiralling population growth, rapidly growing demand for energy, scarcity of fossil fuel resources, vulnerable climatic conditions, technical constraints, organisational problems and lack of political transparency in the decision making processes. Bangladesh is currently unable to ensure necessary energy supplies to meet the energy demand of the country. In fact, energy crisis is one of the major problems in Bangladesh since her independence which is becoming more acute now a day as the gap between demand and production is increasing. Although Bangladesh has adopted different energy reform policies in the last two decades, there has no quantitative research on the economic consequences of such reforms. My PhD thesis will focus on these issues by questioning how economic growth in Bangladesh is affected by energy generation through the regulation of energy market and energy reform policy.
