Abstract

Primary school is the basic unit of our educational system. But in the remote areas, a huge shortage of primary school is observed. Many children of these areas are deprived from sufficient educational facilities. These remote areas are either under supplied or have no provision of electricity supply from the national grid. For this, most of the schools cannot provide the facilities that depend on electricity. As a result, the options of alternative energy sources come forward in those areas to generate power of their own. For power generation self sufficiently, ‘Off the Grid’ is an effective idea in the present days. In remote areas, new technologies for off-grid rural electrification system promise environmentally benign access to electricity at a lower cost than conventional technologies. In this paper, the main focus is to set up a bridge between the renewable energy technologies (RET) and educational infrastructure of the remote areas in Bangladesh.
