Pak team to Sweden will seek energy solutions

KARACHI (PR): A delegation of Pakistan companies will visit Sweden from 24-29 November to hold meetings with green technology and renewable energy experts and companies to explore opportunities for partnerships and joint ventures for transfer of Swedish expertise and technologies to Pakistan.

Sweden ranks first among the world’s 10 greenest economies in 2014 and a bulk of the country’s energy needs are met through renewable sources such as wind, water, biogas and district power and heating produced from household and municipal waste.

 Of the total 216TWh energy consumed in Sweden in 2013, more than 50 per cent came from renewable sources excluding nuclear energy, which accounted for 14.9 per cent of total consumption.  

Bashir Ali Mohammad, Chairman of Gul Ahmed Textile Mills Limited and Sweden’s Honorary Consul General in Karachi, said industries and businesses in Pakistan are now beginning to realise the need and long-term benefits of green technologies and renewable power generation. “We see a big potential, Pakistan’s energy needs are rising, the industries and the economy cannot realise their real growth potential at home and in the export markets without reliable supplies of energy,” Ali Mohammad said.

Gul Ahmed Textile Mills Limited is one of the largest exporters of textiles to Sweden, and Ali Mohammad contends that the Pakistani textile industry has a lot more to offer to the quality-conscious Scandinavian markets. “Our goal is to increase exports and provide exposure and access to Pakistani fashion designers and brands to the Scandinavian markets,” Ali Mohammad said.
