Mr. Kh. Md. Faisal, Mr. M. A. Hossain, Mr. Md Tanzimul Hasan Farabi


Energy sector plays very crucial role in the development of a country and this role becomes more important for a developing country like Bangladesh. Hence, a careful energy demand analysis is vital as it is the most significant factor while preparing a reasonable energy demand forecast. When an appropriate energy demand analysis can be conducted only then a viable energy demand forecast can be produced basing upon which proper policy can be formulated. This work is going to address all these important issues.
