Renewable energy production in Pakistan is getting increased and will soon account for seven percent of the total electricity generated in the country.
According to Gwadar Pro, this was stated by the Chief Executive Officer of the Alternative Development Board (AEDB), Shah Jahan Mirza while speaking at the International Renewable Energy Conference organized here at a local hotel.
“At present, the functional wind, solar, and some other renewable energy projects in the country have been producing 2,000 Megawatts of clean electricity.
Under-construction wind and solar projects in the country would add 850 MWs of renewable energy in the system soon,” he said.
On this occasion, Mian Ghulam Mohiuddin Ahmad, CEO of SGS Electrical Company, said that his company had been working hard to help the Pakistani fan industry adopt the necessary technological innovations to save electricity through their appliances.
He said that his company has introduced a fan in the Pakistani market, which was capable of saving up to 80 percent electricity to the benefit of the power consumers.
Sharing his views with the participants of the meeting, the CEO of Prosun Solar, Muhammad Tahir, said that his company had been making efforts to introduce special solar-powered appliances for areas of Pakistan that were off-grid and didn’t have electricity.“
