Sri Lanka’s BMICH turns to zero emission transport within premises.
The Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH) has recently received a donation of a fleet of four electric three wheelers powered by solar energy by the Korean Energy Agency for the use of visitors to the BMICH.
The donation was reportedly made as assistance to Sri Lanka through the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority (SLSEA).
According to local media reports, the project was designed to utilise the existing solar PV installation at the BMICH to operate an electric vehicle charging station.
The four E-Trikes will be initially used to provide in-compound transport to visitors as BMICH is a facility which spans across a large extent of land.
The ongoing power and energy crises in Sri Lanka have opened up a host of new business/investment opportunities in these two industries. The country’s expanding economic activities and the continuously growing demand for power and energy have opened up opportunities in the supply of power and energy as well as provide sustainable, alternative power and energy sources. The government of Sri Lanka has also adopted a policy of increasing the country’s renewable energy generation capacity while also promoting sustainable energy options for other purposes like transport and industrial purposes. Given the growing demand and opportunities in the country’s power and energy sectors, foreign businesses/investors could explore the increasing opportunities in these two sectors in Sri Lanka.
