The Managing Director of the National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority, Dr. Sardar Mohazzam said that NEECA is actively working on Electric Vehicles (EV) and EV charging stations in Pakistan.
According to the details, the National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (NEECA) has hosted a webinar on International Perspective on Energy Efficiency and Conservation. The Webinar was intended to open the platform for international researchers for generating the debate on Energy efficiency-related interventions in Pakistan. The objective of the webinar was to gauge and influence the interest of the international researcher to help in promoting the energy efficiency & conservation campaign, which is ultimately influenced by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Policy, as suggested by NEECA.
The webinar was followed by distinct speakers, including Managing Director NEECA, Dr. Sardar Muhazzam, and Senior Research Fellow McGill University, Montreal Canada, Dr. Sarish Rehman.
In his remarks, Dr. Sardar Mohazzam said that we have been given the mandate in the 2016 NEECA Act to work in 5 sectors of the economy Power, Buildings, Industry, Agriculture, and Transport. He said that we have set a goal for the upcoming three years to achieve 3MTOE in all sectors.
The Managing Director has said that there are certain other areas in which the National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority is working in collaboration with the Ministry of Climate Change. He said that specifically working in the transport sector, NEECA is actively working on Electric Vehicles (EV) and EV charging stations in Pakistan.
“NEECA wants to engage global researchers to work with us and share their thoughts regarding Energy Efficiency and Conservation in Pakistan,” he added.
On the occasion, Dr. Sarish Rehman said that she appreciates the role of NEECA in EV and EV charging stations in Pakistan. She said that in order to save Energy Security we should have to adopt other alternatives to reduce dependency on fossil fuel.
Sarish Rehman has said that the transport sector contributes 28% of carbon dioxide emissions so we need to move toward the electrification of our auto Mobil industry in order to secure the future of Energy Efficiency and Conservation in the country.
“We need different latest forms of batteries for the modern electrification system, for this purpose we should have to replace the liquid electrolytes with other solid forms of batteries to improve the work efficiency in both high and low temperatures,” she added.
