I want to share some more information about Pakistan..

Pakistan is a developing country, and solution for clean energy is affordable energy. Government, companies and different entrepreneurs in Pakistan are creating ways to aware people about these solutions.

Please go through the follllowing link

some points from the article are:

Meanwhile, the country has enjoyed some clean energy success stories. Its first solar power plant, funded by Beijing, was launched in 2015. More achievements could soon be on the way. Last year, Pakistan concluded deals with Danish and French companies to develop wind energy projects. Additionally, Pakistan and the US have jointly established a clean energy partnership to help attract investment for renewable energy projects.

However, clean energy projects need not be limited to large, donor-funded schemes. While advantageous, these take time to bring on line and can be costly for the government, which must absorb high capital and start-up costs to attract investors to a volatile country where renewable energy is far from an established portfolio. Indeed, there’s something to be said for the utility of homegrown, micro-level projects — from small-scale wind power initiatives to the provision of solar lanterns to remote villages. To be sure, they don’t deliver the political benefits of a glistening new coal power plant, or other high-visibility, large-scale schemes geared to respond to baseline demand. Yet they can deliver, even if on a relatively small scale, a major national benefit: energy security. This is no small matter in a nation that suffers from power sector deficits that average 4,000 megawatts.
