First tentative step as plan for 150 MW wind farm announced

Wind could be taking its first step in Pakistan with the announcement by Brigadier Nasim A Khan, Pakistan's Director Projects, of a 150 MW wind farm to be installed at Kanupp in Karachi. By 2011, Pakistan will require a further 9302 MW of new renewable energy capacity. "Wind power plant seems to be the cheapest solution to our problem," Khan says. The government is going ahead with an integrated plan to provide power for the southern coastal areas of Sindh and Balochistan by harnessing wind and solar energy. It also plans to establish a National Commission for Alternative Energy and Institute of Renewable Energy Technologies.
