ISLAMABAD: The USAID hosted 70 energy experts from across the country to learn about the potential for developing renewable energy zones in Pakistan.

The goal of the two-day technical workshop was to introduce innovative and effective concepts for expediting and scaling up the commercial deployment of renewable energy projects. These projects will make it possible to leverage the abundant solar, wind, biomass and hydroelectric resources in the country.

USAID Deputy Mission Director Clay Epperson said, “Together, we can develop indigenous, clean and sustainable energy resources that will improve energy access for consumers, bring down the cost of electricity, help accelerate human development and enhance the country’s economic competitiveness.” Applauding USAID’s efforts in the energy sector, Planning Commission Member Energy Tahwar Hussian said, “This exercise will certainly pave the way for scaling up renewable energy deployments in Pakistan.”
