According to the Power Generation Capacity Expansion Plan issued by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority, Pakistan (NEPRA), it is estimated that by 2030, Pakistan's photovoltaic installed capacity will reach 12.8GW, and by 2047 this figure will reach 26.9GW, providing a broad market space for the development of the solar PV industry. “The development of solar and wind power generation will enhance Pakistan’s security of electricity supply and put Pakistan at the forefront of the global energy transition,” emphasized Najy Benhassine, the Country Director for Pakistan for the South Asia region in World Bank.
Pakistan has launched a new round of bidding for photovoltaic and wind power projects this month, aiming to further increase the share of clean electricity in the country’s current energy mix to 61%. Shah Jahan Mirza, CEO of the Pakistan Alternative Energy Development Board (AEDB) emphasized, “We are already on track to achieve our goal of adding 7,000 MW of photovoltaic installed capacity by 2030.” Undoubtedly, this opens up another bright way for cooperation between China and Pakistan in new energy.
