    The province of Sindh is well endowed with huge energy resources. Government of Sindh is making strenuous efforts to minimize the energy gaps by focusing on indigenous resources and developing energy infrastructure. The ultimate goal is to provide energy to all at an affordable cost.

    Government of Sindh has initiated a number of renewable energy projects. A robust and investor friendly Renewable energy policy has been adopted to attract the Foreign Direct Investment and local business houses. The Energy Department is providing one window facilities to the investors, and a number of international companies are actively pursuing projects.

    It is a matter of great satisfaction to learn that many renewable power projects are at various stages of development by national and international companies. All projects are expected to start operations within two years.

    For indigenization of renewable technologies, the Govt of Sindh is promoting local industry to manufacture renewable energy equipment. In order to safeguard the interests of the local people, necessary framework has been developed to ensure jobs and training for the local residents.

    I look forward Energy Department’s contributions in other sectors of Renewable Energy as well. We need to have successful projects of “Waste to Energy, small hydro and sugar co-generation. The promotion of alternative modes of energy generation would not only reduce our dependence on costly fuel imports but would also address many environmental issues.

    The Government of Sindh intends to continue endeavours for the provision of low cost and environment friendly power for the citizens.
