Clean Energy Transition Summit – Pakistan
The Clean Energy Transition Summit (CET-Pakistan) is organized on the basis of evidence-based research, data generation, policy recommendations, demand, and on the simultaneous push for pulling coal out along with the removal of policy barriers for RE acceleration under the auspice of ARE Policy 2019. The proposed recommendations of shifting investment priorities and finances to Renewable energy sources, manage the country’s energy resources in socially equitable, environmentally sustainable, and economical viable ways can be further made powerful by creating enabling conditions for achieving targets of the governments’ national targets and international commitments to climate change.
The specific objectives of the summit are to:
1. Launch an inclusive strategy for clean energy needs, so a specific policy solution can be considered by the policymakers which may elicit a shift towards Renewable Energy (RE) more proactively.
2. Strengthening legislation and policy support for national (Pakistan) risk management by comprehensively considering various aspects of risks of coal investments in Pakistan and coming up with optimal strategies as well as focusing on investments for sustainability and decarbonization of the energy sector.
3. Successful awareness of the message through stakeholder consultations by engaging Pakistani decision makers from the energy sector as well as Chinese leadership and investors to divert their priorities towards renewable energy projects and technologies.
