CHITTAGONG, Feb 4: Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology (CUET), in collaboration with the Chittagong Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI), arranged a roundtable meeting on "Captive Power for Electricity" in the city recently.
Speaking as the chief guest of the occasion, CUET Vice Chancellor Mir Shahidul Islam said, formulation of a time-befitting guideline is imperative for establishing captive power plant.
If properly operated, it would be possible to ensure maximum utilisation of power during peak and off-peak hours, he added.
