Renewable energy: Punjab offers special incentives

Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that special incentives are being offered to local and foreign investors and companies for investment in the energy sector. He expressed these views while speaking to a delegation of Indian energy experts led by Pawind Parweet Badal. He said India, especially East Punjab, had set up biomass, biogas and small hydel projects for electricity generation and the Punjab government in Pakistan wanted to benefit from the successful projects set up in East Punjab. He said there were vast opportunities for setting up biomass, biogas and small hydel projects for generation of electricity in the province. The chief minister directed provincial authorities to finalise consultative and technical processes immediately to benefit from India’s experience. He said every moment was precious and the officials concerned should finalise viable projects without wasting any time. The head of the Indian delegation, Pawind Parweet Badal, assured the Punjab government of their cooperation.
