I. Model Study of Community Electrification in Bangladesh Using a Long-life Storage Battery System
From August 2013 through February 2014, Sony undertook a study*1
in an unelectrified area of Bangladesh (Gaibandha district, Saghata sub-district) aimed at encouraging the effective use of renewable energy generation and improving living conditions and hygiene for local people using a long-life storage battery system*2
and photovoltaic (PV) panels. Based on the results of this study, Sony has begun considering the feasibility of building a new business model.
