Japan extends US$5.4 mln grant for solar energy project PDF Print E-mail
ISLAMABAD, Feb 11 (APP): The Japanese government extended a grant of Yen 480,000,000 (US$ 5.4 million) to Pakistan for “Introduction of Clean Energy by Solar Electricity Generation System” programme. An agreement to this effect was signed here on Thursday by Secretary, Economic Affairs Division, Sibtain Fazal Halim and Ambassador of Japan in Pakistan, Chihiro Atsumi on behalf of their respective governments.

Under the Clean Energy Initiative, two on-grid solar power generation systems (100 KW each) will be installed under grant-aid through JICA, one at Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) and other at roof of Planning Commission’s building.
The project will promote clean energy utilization and will help achieve emission reduction by installing the new system that would be connected to the national grid.
The system is expected to reduce the gas emission, by replacing the part of electric power generated by fossil fuel and contribute to the climate change policy of Pakistan.
This project is first of its kind in the country, which would set precedent as a role model of defining procedures and strategy at the level for on-grid solar power generation.
It is expected to become an effective measure to overcome the energy shortage and a motive for utilizing solar power, for which there is big scope with relatively less investment.
On the occasion. Chihiro Atsumi said that Japan was concerned about the challenges caused by the climate change in Pakistan which has been resulting in receding glaciers and lack of rain fall.
During the Copenhagen conference held last month, Japan has committed to reduce the carbon emission, and Pakistan and Japan would try to utilize the solar energy to achieve this goal.
On the occasion, Secretary EAD said that Government of Japan has deep and diversified relations with Pakistan adding that Japan was the biggest donor partner of Pakistan and continued its support in education, health, energy, environment and disaster management.
Japan has also helped in capacity building and institution building in Pakistan, the Secretary added.
Speaking on the occasion, Pakistan Engineering Council, Chairperson Ms. Rukhsana Zubari expressed the hope that the launch of this project and the awareness created through media could lead to the solutions of energy problems.
This system is economically viable and will also help in income generation, she added.
