hydroelectric power generation

 Pakistan can generate 50,000 MW of hydroelectric power but only about 6,596 MW has been developed over the past 50 years, presenting a grim picture and negligence , corruption and inefficiency of the past governments. Hydroelectric power is several times cheap as compared to other sources of electricity and Pakistan is fortunately lucky to have a lot of potential to generate power from its rivers and streams but this resource has not been tapped properly so far.
This was stated by experts of the field of power generation at the international conference on "Solar and Bio Energy System," arranged by the Department of Farm Machinery and Power, Faculty of Agricultural Engineering and Technology, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad.
The session was presided over by Punjab Energy Department Secretary, M. Rab Nawaz .
