Abstract

Abstract Views: 1070

The potential for renewable energy in Pakistan, its legislative and regulatory framework, technological developments, investment opportunities, difficulties, and prospects for the future are the main topics of this research study. Due to the government's commitment to clean energy, favorable renewable energy resources, and growing private sector involvement, Pakistan is experiencing a dramatic transition towards renewable energy. The expansion of massive renewable energy projects, distributed generating systems, improvements in energy storage technologies, grid integration, and research into green hydrogen production are highlighted in this article. It also discusses the sector's difficulties and limitations, including policy uncertainties, constrained funding alternatives, infrastructure constraints, and operational and technical difficulties. The study offers a case study of productive renewable energy initiatives in Pakistan, highlighting the nation's development in the fields of solar, wind, off-grid, and small hydropower. The study's conclusions point to a bright future for renewable energy in Pakistan, one that offers chances for investment, employment growth, and sustainable economic development.
