NEECA hosts a webinar on International perspective on EE&C

National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (NEECA) has hosted a webinar on International Perspective on Energy Efficiency and Conservation.

The Webinar was intended to open the platform for international researchers for generating the debate on Energy efficiency-related interventions in Pakistan. The objective of the webinar was to gauge and influence the interest of the international researcher to help in promoting energy efficiency & conservation campaign, which is ultimately influenced by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Policy, as suggested by NEECA.

The webinar was followed by distinct speakers, including Managing Director NEECA: Dr. Sardar Muhazzam and Senior Research Fellow McGill University, Montreal Canada: Dr. Sarish Rehman.

Dr. Mohazzam said in his opening remarks that we have given the mandate in 2016 NEECA act to work in 5 sectors of the economy such as, Power, Buildings, Industry, Agriculture, and Transport. He further said that we have set a goal for the upcoming three years to achieve 3MTOE in all sectors. He added that there are some certain other areas in which NEECA is working in collaboration with the Ministry of Climate Change. He said that specifically working in the transport sector, NEECA is actively working on Electric Vehicles (EV) and EV charging stations in Pakistan. He further expressed his views that NEECA wants to engage global researchers to work with us and share their thoughts regarding Energy Efficiency and Conservation in Pakistan.

 

Dr. Sarish Rehman said that she appreciates the role of NEECA in EV and EV charging stations in Pakistan. She further said that in order to save Energy Security we should have to adopt other alternatives to reduce dependency on fossil fuel. She added that the transport sector contributes 28% of carbon dioxide emissions so we need to move toward the electrification of our auto Mobil industry in order to secure the future of Energy Efficiency and Conservation in the country. She further added that we need different latest forms of batteries for the modern electrification system, for this purpose we should have to replace the liquid electrolytes with other solid forms of batteries to improve the work efficiency in both high and low temperature.
