Network for Clean Energy Transition-Research and Advocacy
Partner/Donor: European Climate Fund
Duration: Jul 2020 to Jun 2021
Team Members: Dr. Hina Aslam and Ahad Nazir,
SDPI has started this project with the help of European Climate Fund. The project aims to develop an inclusive evidence based framework to guide the future energy policy. SDPI will be inclusive towards all the stakeholders and encourage collaborations between communities from all ends of the social spectrum to inspire a continuously improving series of efforts for sustainable use of energy and conservation. We anticipate formulating a China-Pakistan network for renewable energy to advocate the need towards transition to clean energy pathways and meeting the climate goals. This forum will include both Chinese and Pakistani stakeholders and key representatives from public and private sector, research/academia, NGOs, CSOs and multilateral institutes. To provide update knowledge and research based analysis to the government it will be ensure that the research outputs of the project are regularly updated.
The objectives of the projects are:
- To study the risk due to investment in coal towards the green and clean energy transformation in Pakistan.
- To conduct evidence-based advocacy on clean and green energy investment impacting both Pakistani and Chinese stakeholders
This project hopes to achieve following outcomes:
- Successful seeping in of the message through stakeholder consultations by engaging Pakistani decision makers from the energy sector as well as Chinese leadership and investors in order to have fruitful discussions and policy dialogues on the risks of coal investments and shift to renewable energy technologies.
- Strengthened 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 decarbonisation of the energy sector.
