    The global investors consider Pakistan as the most potential hub in the region to generate electricity exploiting solar energy as it has immense capacity and potential to explore sunlight as compared with different part of the world.

    Raphael Lechner Lead Trainer of Institute fur Energiethnik at 5-day training prom on Solar PV System on Monday under the auspices of Renewal Energy Association of Pakistan said the solar energy was one of the effective and immediate fields for Pakistan to overcome its worsening energy crisis along with different renewable projects side-by-side. Handsome investment in Pakistan will be landing in this sector if the government and private sector join hands to work on the fastest emerging technology and source of electricity production, Lechner said.

    So far many projects of solar energy in the pipeline but there is a need to plan a mega project which provides a lowest cost electricity to masses compared with different conventional sources particularly furnace oil and gas.

    Germany has achieved tremendous success for producing renewable energy and attained a status of top power producers through solar energy yet Pakistan has much potential more than double of it tapping its natural resource for combating its power crisis, Lechner added.

    The investors of the Germany are taking keen interest to invest in the Pakistan as they have technology, expertise and equipment for generating power through solar energy, he said.


    Ecosystem should be developed for the promotion and development of solar-run energy projects. In this regard, human resource is top priority of the country to equip them with advance skills for implementation of successful and productive solar-run power projects.

    Dr Nasim Ahmed Khan, former Secretary Alternate Energy Development Board said Pakistan government should support renewable energy with true letter and spirit through proper funding of research and development and human resource training.

    There are many small solar projects in the queue that will be established in the next few years but the development of this sector should be paced up for meeting the growing needs of electricity in the country. staff report

    Going solar is the way forward for Pakistan, Zardari can only build stumble stones but can't stop it.

    Govt. shall understand it and take away the import duties, as they do not make any sense.

    Yeah, everything is always "potential", never to be realized.

    ^ On a similar note- from all the news that is always coming out it seems Pakistan has SOOO much potential but it seems to be being wasted to a significant degree right now. Pakistan needs to pull its finger out or it is going to get left behind.


    A bit harsh maybe but this is the truth.

    The article is simply spreading false promises of a better future, that is all.
