ABSTRACT
Pakistan by the grace of Almighty Allah is having huge energy positional but this capability has not been explored fully but with exception of some large hydel works. An endeavor has been put-in by the Govt now to incorporate renewable energy in the development strategy. The strategy will be implemented in three phases. Exploring different energy resources and their use can help Pakistan to come out from this quagmire. Hosts of allied problems like extra costs and dangers of fuel stocking, carriage, and alternative arrangements will be minimized. Global warming, green house gasses, environmental degradation and other related problems will be reduced using alternative energy resources. This will also reduce the energy related hazards.
