Economic Review (05318955);May2004, Vol. 35 Issue 5/6, p5
The article focuses on prospects of hydroelectric power generation in Pakistan. The government launched the Policy for 2002 that outlines its main objectives to providing sufficient capacity for power generation at the least cost, and to avoid capacity shortfalls, with emphasis on exploiting and promoting indigenous resources of fuels and developing renewable energy resources. The scope of policy covers private sector projects, public sector projects and public-private partnership projects. The policy presents vast opportunities to the investors to develop new electric power generating facilities.
