Wind Power as Primary Solution for Pakistan’s Power Crisis

Planning Minister: “Renewable Energy is Energy of People” which “no one can monopolize” 

Islamabad/Bonn, 23 June 2014 (WWEA) – At a conference “Scaling-up Wind Power Deployment for Pakistan's Sustainable Energy Future”, jointly organized by WWEA, Alternative Energy Development Board and Heinrich Böll Foundation Pakistan, 100 participants from government, business, academia and NGOs discussed how Pakistan can progress faster in wind power deployment in order to encounter its current energy crisis.

High-level speakers included Planning, Development and Reforms Minister Prof Ahsan Iqbal; Mr Asjad Imtiaz Ali, CEO of the Alternative Energy Development Board; Dr Miftah Ismail, CEO of the Board of Investment; Mr Werner Liepach, Country Director of the Asian Development Bank; Mr Peter Felten, Deputy Ambassador of Germany; Ms Saima Jasam, HBS Country Director; WWEA Honorary Vice President Air Marshall (rtd) Shahid Hamid and WWEA Secretary General Mr Stefan Gsänger.

All speakers highlighted the benefits of renewable energy in general and of wind power in particular, in order to encounter Pakistan’s current and severe power crisis. Especially wind power could contribute fast and at low cost to supply electricity to the national grid and to reduce the need of load shedding in the country which has currently a lack of 5'000 MW of electricity generation capacity. Wind power could also help to electrify thousands of villages in rural areas as a least-cost option.

In this context, the socioeconomic advantages of wind power were highlighted: Minister Ahsan Iqbal underlined that “renewable energy is energy of people” and offers especially huge benefits for local communities. He pointed out that “no corporate entity, no government can put monopoly on wind".

World Wind Energy Award 2014 for Dr. Anil Kane, pioneer of wind power in India and worldwide

Shanghai/Bonn, 8 April 2014 (WWEA) – On the occasion of the 13th World Wind Energy Conference 2014 in Shanghai, the Board of the World Wind Energy Association has decided to give the World Wind Energy Award 2014 to Dr. Anil Kane. With the Award, the WWEA Board recognizes Dr. Kane as one of the pioneers of wind power in India, Asia and worldwide.

Already in the early 1980s, when hardly anybody understood the huge potential of wind power, Dr. Kane started working for wind and personally invested in wind turbines by putting up the first commercial wind farm in Gujarat. This wind farm is still in operation without any trouble for the last 30 years.

WWEA appreciates that Dr. Kane has been involved in the wind power development on the academic, business and government side, as an advisor to many of the key organizations of Indian wind power. Dr. Kane has been instrumental in forming government policies for promoting wind energy in India from the central government as well as several state governments.
