Objective:

This NAMA support project is designed to develop a master plan for development of wind power and prepare a strategy for developing national grid to evacuate the power. This NAMA Support project will also help in addressing the issues related to financing and capacity lackings.

Activities:
Currently planned solar power projects are dispersedly located, however, major part of the projects are concentrated in Cholistan, Punjab. This would enable the grid operator to meet the electricity needs of the central part of the country through solar power projects. This would reduce the line losses.

Establish master planning for development of solar power in potential areas of Pakistan, create enabling environment and develop the grid infrastructure to evacuate 1,500 MW solar power in next five years.

Following related objectives would also be achieved through this proposed NAMA:

  • A master plan will be developed for development of solar power in the country.
  • A strategy document will be prepared that would facilitate in evacuation of power supply of 1,500 MW in the national grid could be achieved
  • A financing instrument will be created to promote solar power in the country
  • A solar power support fund will be established for support development of solar power in Pakistan
  • Capacity of the stakeholders will be enhanced to handle solar power infrastructure.
  • Pakistan supply and demand deficit in the electricity sector will be This will lead towards establishing a strong footing towards significantly reduce emission of greenhouse gases of approximately 1.26 million tCO2 annually
  • Contribution towards improved and sustainable economy by providing relatively cheaper electricity.

Impact and MRV

Cumulative GHG reductions: No data available
Mitigative capacity:

It is estimated that the planned solar power projects will have a potential of reducing emissions of GHGs to the tune of 1.26 million tCO2 on annual basis. The NAMA Support Project would result mitigating the risks involved in diversion from Business As Usual (BAU) growth trajectories. This will be done through removing technical, technological and financial barriers and improving the systems in vogue. This NAMA Support project is expected play an important role in overall Greening of Economy and Green Growth as is envisaged is Pakistan National Climate Change Policy of Government of Pakistan. Development of solar power as envisaged under the NAMA Support project with a vision to encourage private sector investment coming to the development. This NAMA Support project is expected to leavrage the private sector investment and create an enabling environment for trigger development of solar power in the country. This NAMA Support project targets developing this entirely a new venue in Pakistan to level that 1.5 GW solar power may be installed by 2020. This NAMA would enable the country to proficiently develop solar sector in Pakistan and contribute in mitigating GHG emissions."It is estimated that the planned solar power projects will have a potential of reducing emissions of GHGs to the tune of 1.26 million tCO2 on annual basis.

Co-benefits:

Social: Availability of power would also enable social uplift of the people residing in remote parts of the country.
Economic: Availability of power would result in meeting electricity demand. This would add to the economic benefit of the country. The development of 1.5 GW through solar power can help in reducing fossil fuel import bill approximately US $ 0.5 billion per year. The master planning undertaken and strategies being developed under this NAMA Support project will help in triggering more than US $ 2.8 billion private sector investment in the country. The project will result in establishing a financing instrument for development of solar power with the focus of addressing concerns of lenders and developers.
