The wind in Bangladesh's coastal belts is the object of a current study which seeks to determine the potential of wind energy. The Bangladesh Centre for Advanced Studies is conducting the study alongwith local government engineering departments, with the British Overseas Development Agency providing the financial backing. The pre-feasibility study aims to establish the energy potential, on the basis of which a pilot project would be developed for large-scale commercial generation of electricity from wind.
