Authors : Muslima Zahan and Md. Al-Amin

Abstract : In Bangladesh, sustainable energy has been a hot topic since the country is facing long-standing electricity crisis. The government is trying to mitigate the problem through the sustainable use of the solar panel, yet there is no research directly linking sustainability and solar panel usage in the context of Bangladesh. Hence, the purpose of this study is to identify whether solar panels will be a sustainable source of energy in Bangladesh. The study was conducted with 75 solar panel users living in Bashundhara Residential Area, Dhaka. The researchers deliberately chose this area because a regulation from the authority involves binding the inhabitants to install solar home system. The findings of this study indicate that the usage of solar panel will not be sustainable in the long-run.
