Akij Group recently set up its first rooftop solar plant at Janata Jute Mill in Boalmari, Faridpur.
Chinese telecom giant Huawei provided technical solutions and support to this initial 470 KW project along with the engineering procurement construction partner Cynergy.
"Bangladesh should now turn its attention to renewable energy as this is where the future lies. We should set a goal to generate 100 percent of electricity from renewable sources by 2025," Akij Group Managing Director Sheikh Bashir Uddin said.
Jason Li, board member of Huawei Bangladesh, said: "Huawei wants to empower the energy sector of Bangladesh by increasing efficiency with its extraordinary digital power solutions as we are working here for building a fully connected, intelligent Bangladesh."
