MULTAN: The National Productivity Organisation (NPO) has launched a programme to help overcome the energy crisis by utilising available resources by new and innovative means.
NPO chief executive Khawaja Mohammad Yousuf said that energy efficient appliances were being manufactured to minimise the energy crisis throughout the country. Yousuf said that more electricity consuming appliances were under use in the private and industrial sector over the past decade which had contributed to the prevailing energy shortage.
“We are working to convert these appliances into energy efficient ones and a team of professionals is receiving training abroad in this regard,” he said.
“This will prove helpful in promoting Pakistan’s exports and the machines will be internationally certified,” he added.
“Currently, a fan being exported for $25 will be exported for double that rate after it is made energy efficient,” he said.
The NPO is also being linked to World Confederation of Productivity Science and the organisation is launching a disaster risk reduction programme concerning CNG.
