Minister of State for Education, Training and Standards in Higher Education and Interior Muhammad Balighur Rehman has said the government is making all-out efforts to overcome the energy crisis.

He was speaking at the closing ceremony of a three-day international conference on Energy Systems and Policies at Air University.

The minister told the audience that by February next year, all compressed natural gas (CNG) stations would switch to liquefied natural gas (LNG) to overcome the difficulties faced by them and the vehicle owners.

He spoke about several planned power projects including a 1,100-megawatt solar power plant in Bahawalpur.

“It is a positive sign that educational institutes are taking initiatives in the national interest considering their social responsibility,” he remarked.

He appreciated the Air University management for organising the conference and bringing together international and national scholars and experts, who gave useful inputs to tackle the energy problem.
