Govt urged to implement electric power wheeling, banking policy

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Energy Watch (PEW) has urged the government to implement electric power wheeling and banking policy without any delay to pave the way for reliable and efficient transmission of electricity, in addition to creating competition in the electricity market.

Commenting on a letter sent by the Power Division to the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) for amending the wheeling policy, PEW General Secretary Faiz Bhutta said renewable energy wheeling should also be part of the regulation for a quick growth of renewable energy sector in Pakistan, which was suffering because of a lack of integrated planning and short-term focus of the government on coal and liquefied natural gas (LNG).
