Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Authority (SREDA) is working with a target to achieve 15% Energy Efficiency improvement by 2021 and 20% by 2030. As stated in the Energy Efficiency and Conservation (EE&C) Master Plan up to 2030, Bangladesh has huge EE&C potential in residential, commercial (building) & industrial sectors.
