imageISLAMABAD: Energy expert Irfan Mirza has said that the coastal belt of Sindh with its 80 km width and 180 km length, has too much potential for generation of wind energy.

Talking to a private news channel, he said Pakistan had well-defined wind energy corridors along with solar energy potential and photovoltaic opportunity.

He said Pakistan was among a few fortunate countries, which have a lot of potential of alterative and renewable energy production. It also had natural resources of bio-fuel and cogeneration.

He hoped that the present government would capitalize on the renewable energy resources.

He said the recent visit of a US delegation of Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) to Pakistan was a good omen. The corporation takes part in debt and equity financing, he added.
