The Impact of Skill Development in Bangladesh Energy Sector
Although the indigenous energy reserves are getting exhausted, it is believed that Bangladesh still has an enormous quantity of energy reserves that are yet to be unearthed and used partly due to lack of expertise in making discoveries and inability to execute exploration of existing ones. This is particularly due to the limited expertise and skilled human resource in the energy sector. It is obvious that at the current usage rate and if no new reserves are discovered, the natural gas reserve in Bangladesh will be exhausted by 2031. Thus, skill development to create technologically skilled human resources aimed at operating in the energy sector is extremely important.
