Govt urged to promote alternate energy resources

Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry has urged government to promote alternate energy resources, as reliance on conventional resources like thermal was one of the biggest reasons of energy crisis.

We have to plan right now for days to come otherwise Pakistan would become a trading place instead of industrial hub, said LCCI President Ijaz Mumtaz in a statement on Tuesday.

LCCI will hold special training sessions for the guidance of technical people with the latest trends in new alternative technologies and to increase their efficiency. LCCI will bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars at one place to come up with a joint strategy to make best use of this technology.

The desired results of our efforts can be doubled or even more if the government’s support remains available to us in implementing the research findings and replicating
the successful models related to bio-energy from modern world.

Bio energy is a versatile source that can be used to overcome electricity challenge besides making a considerable contribution to climate change phenomenon.

He said biomass energy has the potential convert a wide variety of wastes into clean energy besides being substitution for diminishing global oil supplies.

Mumtaz said bio energy could play a very vital role in production of carbon-neutral fuels of high quality. It can address many environmental issues, especially global warming and greenhouse gases emissions and foster sustainable development among poor communities.

Biomass fuel sources are readily available in rural and urban areas of
all countries.

We all are aware of present challenges to our economy and especially the menace widely caused due to severe energy crisis. He said it was indeed a matter of concern for us that our gas reserves were depleting with the passage of time. Be it domestic or industrial users all have to face shortage of gas in winter season. Even the generation of electricity through gas has to put on halt in this period that further aggravates the situation.

We desperately need some good alternatives and viable solutions in this connection. A wide range of biomass resources, particularly woody biomass and organic waste is available in Pakistan in abundance, so some serious efforts are required to be made to establish necessary modalities to commercialise it at a mega scale.
