By | September 15, 2019

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the National University of Sciences and Technology (UNST) have worked together to develop the first ‘biomass cluster’ in Pakistan.

The main objective of the project is to promote market-based adoption of innovative biomass energy conversion technologies for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Pakistan and the generation of electricity in rural areas.

According to a press release, the US program promotes sustainable energy production and uses biomass for the Center for Advanced Studies in Energy, Pakistan under the banner of Newdo. An inaugural consultation meeting was held at the Pakistan Center on Monday.

The meeting was attended by key stakeholders, who for the first time discussed the development of biomass cluster in Pakistan.

There was healthy participation of the public and private sectors, private companies, educational and research institutions, international agencies and financial institutions. Alternative Energy Development Board (AEDB), Small and Medium Enterprise Development Authority (SMEDA), Punjab Bio-Energy Company Limited (PBECL), State Bank Banking Services Corporation (SBP-BSC), Asia Development Bank (ADB), while Barkati Bank Limited (ZTBL)), Ministry of Food Safety and Research, SAARC Energy Center (SEC), Asia Foundation, Punjab University, DESCON and Ali Engineering among these key participants.

“Promoting sustainable energy production and biomass use in Pakistan” was a move by the United Nations Industrial Development Agency (UNIDO), funded by GEF. Under the banner of the initiative, the US Pakistan Center for Advanced Studies in Energy, Nost was tasked with working on biomass cluster development and developing a localization strategy to adopt modern biomass conversion technologies in Pakistan. ۔

It also includes leveraging companies and developing senior management confidence (beneficiaries as well as future technology vendors) to help finance the financial and economic attractiveness of biomass gasification applications worldwide, and especially in the Asian region.

In addition, it also includes a study on financial incentive mechanisms, which will help commercial biomass projects in Pakistan achieve financial viability. Finally, it developed an investment and replication strategy for the use of biomass gasification technology in SMEs and rural areas through a cluster-based approach.

All participants agreed on the need for a cluster that supports shared knowledge / data storage, which is easily accessible by all stakeholders and provides easy access to SMEs and farmer friendly tools, templates and businesses. Promotes The app provides. According to key stakeholders, such measures are essential for the rapid entry of biomass-generated green energy into Pakistan. During the workshop, stakeholders discussed the cluster’s scope and services, its sustainability and operational strategies.

All stakeholders called for E3 (ie, energy, environment and economy) for sustainable social and national development and the USPCAS-E and UNIDO’s efforts to promote green energy in Pakistan. praised. USPCAS-E has thanked all stakeholders for active participation, especially UNIDO, for being a long-term partner in this activity, and similar networking seminars and workshops in the future. Plans to hold. This approach refers to the NUST and UNIDO’s growing goals of government governance such as 30% renewable energy contribution by 2030, rural electricity supply and low cost energy supply for SMEs and large industries.
