This project was initiated to establish a wind-power industry in the country. Wind-power has proven to be a safer alternative than other energy sources besides being an economically viable and sustainable option. The projects aims to achieve this by removing policy, institutional, regulatory, fiscal and technical barriers to private investments in wind farms and their integration into the power grid, especially in remote areas where alternative generation options are limited and/or costly.
To reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions through the facilitation of commercial-scale exploitation of renewable wind energy for power production in Pakistan.
Five wind masts installed and made operational. Installationof further two wind masts is in progress.
Wind data generated from the wind masts being used by private investors to plan setting up of wind farms in these locations.
AEDB- the implementing partner of the project with funding of ADB is working on the development of legal framework for net metering applications of renewable energy projects.
Rural electrification model on solar/wind hybrid systems under implementation. The completion of these demonstration models will provide access to secure alternative energy sources to 100 households in a village of 600 population
