Zardari sees opportunities in Pakistan for 'massive investment' in renewables

President Zardari said yesterday that Pakistan offers promising opportunities for massive investment in alternative energy sources. President Zardari was presiding over meetings on ‘Alternative Energy Options’ available to energy-starved Pakistan.

He advised the authorities concerned that all the new houses being built in the rural areas of Sindh under Behan Benazir Basti Programme should be provided with solar or wind power. The president also said new street lights should be solar/LED-based, billboards and electronic power-based neon signs should be converted to solar, and special industrial hubs set up in the coastal areas of Sindh and Balochistan based on the wind power harnessed in these areas.
