I have been working in telecommunication fields for the last 22 years. I have worked 17 years in Grameenphone Ltd, in Bangladesh and last four years as CTO. I have also worked 4 years in Telenor India as COO. Currently, I am working as Senior Vice President in Telenor Group, leading Operate and driving energy efficiency across Telenor Business Units.
During my career, one of the prime focus was bringing further efficiency in energy utilization for Telecom use both on demand and supply side. This includes optimizing the loads in the sites, getting rid of all non value adding loads like air-conditioners, bringing in renewable energy to reduce diesel generator dependency, etc. I was also part of trials of creating community grids with solar in very remote areas with the help of Telecom sites’ solar plant.
