Power plays a vital role for a developing country like Bangladesh. Like the rest of the countries of the world, the demand of power is rising day by day in our country. But Bangladesh has been facing electricity shortage for many years. In our country, a major portion of total population still does not have the access to electricity. For becoming a developed country, Bangladesh has to overcome the problem of power crisis. Renewable energy can be a great source to solve this problem. Already some government and non-government organization are working on renewable sources like solar energy, bioenergy, wind energy, etc. In this paper we mainly focused to develop and implement microgrid system with CSP-biogas combined power plant for providing electricity in rural and remote areas of Bangladesh
