Call for promotion of renewable energy.
LAHORE:Despite huge potential, renewable energy
is yet to gain popularity in the country, primarily due to lack of equipment standardization as well as proper training and awareness.
Premier Energy's (PE) country head Daniyal Siddiqui told APP
here on Sunday that comprehensive and viable measures were needed
at public and private levels for promotion of renewable energy,
which would definitely help narrow down the power demand and supply
gap in the country.
Keeping the importance of renewable energy in view, he said
that his organisation was aimed at revolutionising the energy sector through provision of superior quality products and exceptional
services to all its clients.
The PE, he mentioned, has for long been organising training
sessions, conferences, seminars and awareness programmes to promote
the use of renewable energy resources, besides developing young,
dynamic and well-qualified individuals to change the energy consumption patterns in Pakistan.
Siddiqui said that the PE and South Eastern Regional College
Lisburn (SERC) had agreed to collaborate in the fields of solar energy, electrical installation and environmental technologies. "This
initiative will result in planning, execution and operations of a
technical training institute in Pakistan that will not only provide Accredited Vocational Training Programmes but also meet the industry's needs.
He added that an SERC team, headed by Mr Paul, also visited the
PE head office here and was briefed by PE Manager (Business
Developtment) Ms Haania Ali about the significance of the collaboration.
Siddiqui hoped that the collaboration would ensure provision of
sustainable energy solutions and result in energy independence of the country through the effective use and promotion of renewable energy resources. The SERC platform would lead to establishment of a fully functional internationally accredited renewable energy training institute in Pakistan under the name of PremSol.
With this partnership, he said, the SERC and Premier shared more than just knowledge base but would also be taking Pakistan one step closer to energy independence as well as create more employment opportunities.
