Govt making efforts to generate cheaper electricity: Qamar

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Water and Power, Syed Naveed Qamar has said the government was making all out endeavors to generate cheaper electricity by developing indigenous energy resources, especially renewable in the country.

Presiding over 23rd AEDB Board meeting he said renewable energy would not only help shorten the demand and supply gap of energy but also help in having a sustainable energy resource base in the country. He said the federal government would continue to help provinces in development of renewable energy resources related to their areas.

He directed AEDB to take up the resource assessment surveys in light of the Prime Minister’s recent directives all over Pakistan, especially in the far-flung areas of the country, where off-grid energy supply system could be established. The Board approved a project for wind energy assessment in Baluchistan. He said the fast track wind power projects in Sindh would be fully facilitated for their timely completion. Sindh government would facilitate the other fast track wind power projects to get the land at the earliest. The Board intimated due to successful new policy investors are lining up, and has requested for allotment of land for wind power projects. He directed AEDB to prepare plans for electrification in the off grid areas through solar and biomass and present the plans in the next Board meeting.
