Pakistan Plans To Produce 30% Electric Vehicles By 2030. The Pakistan has plans to start using alternative renewable energy (ARE) in the future, as part of the global effort to reduce dependency on fossil fuels and “go green.” Pakistan wants to achieve a future free of emissions in the next seven years by using 60% renewable energy sources.
Khurram Dastgir, the Federal Minister of Energy, led a group that went to Bangkok for the USAID-sponsored Future Energy Asia Conference 2023. The topic of the conference was “Emerging Clean Energy Investment Opportunities in Pakistan.”
Pakistan Plans To Produce 30% of Electric Vehicles By 203
Shah Jahan Mirza, the managing director of the Private Power and Infrastructure Board (PPIB), Amjad Majeed Khan, the director of the Alternative Energy Development Board (AEDB), and Syed Aqeel Hussain Jaffri made up the delegation.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are associated with clean energy, which is one of the goals of Pakistan’s National Electricity Policy 2021, which Dastagir emphasized. One of the goals of the policy is to have 30% of vehicles in Pakistan be electric by 2030. Additionally, the federal minister reported that Pakistan’s renewable energy strategy has reached 6% with a 2,436 kW installed capacity.
According to Dr. Naveed Arshad, an Associate Professor at LUMS, Pakistan’s “30 by 30” goal is still reachable. Sincerely, I don’t think we have any other choices.
Current difficulties for electric cars (EVs) include regulatory barriers and a lack of financing. Obstacles exist, and the situation is still precarious,” he continued.
He said, “Although there are twenty-two two-wheeler and three-wheeler EV producers registered with the Engineering Development Board (EDB), only a small number have shown their product lineup.
Additionally, the registration of electric three-wheelers is still not permitted in Punjab and Sindh. After a period of stability, I hope the government will have time to consider electric cars (EVs) and bring them up once more. How do you feel about Pakistan’s 2030 electric vehicle plan?
