The 7th edition of Solar Pakistan will takes place at Lahore Expo Centre from 29 – 31 March 2018. Solar Pakistan is designed to serve the solar market by bringing together the industry leaders, manufacturers and suppliers under one roof to seek new business technologies, solutions and other services.
The event will focus on Photovoltaic, smart energy solutions and technology, energy storage systems & renewable heating. By participating, one can avail the opportunity of networking and meeting with key industry professionals in the solar market of Pakistan.
Energy is the lifeline of any country. Unfortunately, Pakistan is facing energy crisis which has badly affected the industry and economy. The reasons for this crisis in Pakistan is that it depends too much on non-renewable energy sources – gas and oil – to meet industrial/domestic demands. The only way for Pakistan to overcome chronic energy crisis is to shift from conventional and non-renewable energy sources to renewable energy sources which are environment-friendly as well. Among all renewable energy sources the solar energy is the most plentiful and widely spread in the country.
Solar PV power potential has been estimated as 1600 GW which is about 80 times greater than current non-renewable energy power generation in Pakistan. Many solar plants are in pipeline under China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Pakistan has also the potential of generating electricity through wind. Electricity in Pakistan can also be generated through biomass energy. Pakistan has the potential of 1500 MW electricity generation through biomass-based power.
According to the World Bank, Pakistan has become the first country to benefit from duly validated, high-quality solar maps under a global initiative, allowing it to tap into its renewable energy resources more effectively. Pakistan is now part of a small group comprising mainly developed countries with access to sustainable and affordable sources of indigenous energy.
