LAHORE (PR): A special meeting of technical experts held on Monday chaired by Engineer Study Forum President Mian Fazal Ahmad has stressed the need for maximum utilisation of local resources as well as drawing short term practical plans to end the gravity of current power crisis within one year in the proposed National Energy Policy. The Forum firmly considers that it is quite feasible to achieve this target.

The Engineers Study Forum welcomed the initiative of present government to launch a National Energy Policy.

The latest move of the Government to end the circular debt amounting to Rs 500 billion to enable IPPs to contribute additional 1,700MWs to the power system is highly laudable.
