According to Ambassador of the Netherlands to Pakistan Wouter Plomp, many Dutch corporations are interested in investing in solid waste energy projects in Pakistan.
The ambassador told Federal Minister of Energy Muhammad Hammad Azhar that Dutch companies had experience using household and agricultural trash to produce cheaper electricity.
During the discussion, the federal minister emphasized the government’s efforts to increase Pakistan’s renewable energy contribution, which is set to reach 45 percent by 2030, according to a press release.
Pakistan is eager to develop cleaner, environmentally friendly energy sources, he said, adding that all future energy projects will be renewable.
He claimed that the government was preparing to implement a regulation that would allow power providers to sell electricity to any local corporate organization.
