Abstract

The aspect of microenterprise in the energy sector in Bangladesh is enormous. Microenterprises can offer loans to poor households to consume energy services and help in poverty alleviation and promote efficiency. Fifty per cent of the total population in Bangladesh relies for livelihoods on 7 million available microenterprises. However, 90% of these microenterprises have a negative impact on the environment. Because of these environmentally unsustainable enterprises, the development process of the country is hindered to a great extent. Recently, the World Bank has approved USD 110 to help microenterprises adopt cleaner technologies as part of the Sustainable Enterprise Project (SEP).
