As an energy starved country, Bangladesh is focusing on increasing the use of renewable energy sources for the power generation and concentrated solar power (CSP) is one promising type of renewable energy source. The islands of Bangladesh are yet to connect with the national grid so this research investigated key requirements to install concentrated solar power based power plant in the Sandwip Island. After analyzing environmental conditions, economic prospect and load/demand data a twenty-megawatt parabolic trough CSP plant for the island is proposed in this research. System Advisor Model (SAM) is used to prepare the simulation model. The simulation is conducted based on the real environmental condition of the Sandwip Island and simulation result indicate that the generated power is sufficient to empower the entire island. A cost comparison is carried out among different renewable energy sources to ensure the economic feasibility of the proposed system.
