When people think about energy and development, especially in a developing country’s context, they typically think about providing access to electricity or fuel for clean cooking. But renewable energy goes beyond and underpins all forms of development, and its contribution can be measured through a variety of indicators including jobs, agriculture production, economic growth, etc. Renewable energy also supports development by ensuring energy sovereignty, freeing up financial resources for infrastructure development, healthcare, education, among others.
Leading such an enormous change, Zonergy is pleased to place the dream of completely renewable energy within reach of businesses and sectors of all sizes across Pakistan. The company and their team of experienced technicians are committed to helping their community take the next step in the future by converting to green renewable energy.
The company’s connection with Pakistan started with a $1.5 billion project. It is the world’s largest centralized utility-scale PV power plant with a combined installed capacity of 900 megawatts, which is located in Bahawalpur, eastern Pakistan’s Punjab province. As of the end of March this year, the cumulative generation capacity of the PV station reached 2.4 billion kilowatt-hours. This is enough to satisfy the electricity demands of more than 200,000 local households, the company figures show.
Pakistan’s economy is getting stronger, and it’s in large part thanks to the tremendous efforts of businesses and sectors adopting renewable energy. Over the same channel, Zonergy is pioneering the renewable energy future for Pakistan, attracting many industries with its performance and efficiency. Zonergy has recently completed the massive 520 KW Alfatah Rice Mill Project in Kasur drawing attention of other businesses to take part in green energy agenda.
With the signing of 500kW EPC Project in Balochistan, Zonergy has translated another promise of renewable energy into action and achieves another major milestone on its journey towards a clean, green Pakistan. This energy breakthrough in Balochistan is Government’s thrust on renewables and the target to build self-sustained state.
With ever increasing energy costs due to IMF conditionalities, Government and local are turning towards renewable energy solution to uplift economy. Zonergy is taking lead in helping local industry and Government to meet growing demand at lowest cost. This is the right time for all to foray into solar energy, Zonergy’s solar project in Balochistan is both a significant step for the company towards a balanced energy portfolio and a giant leap towards better future for us a nation.
“Economies across the world are gradually transitioning to cleaner energy sources and now is the time to invest in a better future”, said Richard Guo, President of Zonergy. “Government policies and investment choices can create the necessary momentum to enact systemic change and deliver the energy transformation away from fossil fuels. Driving a structural shift towards cleaner energy systems and more resilient economies and societies is more urgent than ever. Most of all, this is a global agenda, and we must leave no one behind.”
Today, renewable energy sector is witnessing a positive momentum. The sector is committed to provide sustainable and affordable energy for all. Zonergy believes if Pakistan’s renewable potential is unlocked, it can transform the country’s energy architecture to be dominated by clean energy sources. Zonergy looks forward to continuing partnership with the Government, Stakeholders and people and thereby contributing to the country’s energy security. More important than this is that it’s not only about energy solutions but people, world and the future.
