Solar companies, manufacturers, importers, and installers from across Pakistan are converging in the provincial metropolis to rally behind government initiatives to promote clean energy usage in the country. This gathering, organised by the Pakistan Solar Association (PSA), brings together around 400 industry members dedicated to discussing comprehensive plans to maximise solar energy utilisation for a cleaner and sustainable future.
Amid a growing global focus on renewable energy, the solar industry in Pakistan is stepping up to play a pivotal role in reshaping the nation’s energy landscape. Amir Chaudhry, President of the Pakistan Solar Association, expressed his excitement about supporting the government’s initiatives, stating, “We are going to formulate ideas that will translate the government’s vision into reality, aiming to improve the country’s clean energy usage by 60 per cent.”
The potential impact of widespread solar energy adoption in Pakistan cannot be understated.
