Solar PV has been a cornerstone for the energy policy makers around the globe. It is because the environmental effects of solar energy are low as compared to the conventional energy sources. It is free and virtually inexhaustible. Developed countries have long been in the business of using solar energy for energy generation. However, for the third world countries like Pakistan, the use of solar energy for power generation is a relatively new experience. In recent months, Pakistan has shown a paradigm shift in its renewable energy policy and invested on mega power plants based on solar PV system. This paper reviews the recent exponential rise of using solar energy for power generation in Pakistan. The results of this paper will not only help in understanding and hence, curbing the power crisis in Pakistan, but will also be relevant to the other countries of the third world.

Abstract

Solar PV has been a cornerstone for the energy policy makers around the globe. It is because the environmental effects of solar energy are low as compared to the conventional energy sources. It is free and virtually inexhaustible. Developed countries have long been in the business of using solar energy for energy generation. However, for the third world countries like Pakistan, the use of solar energy for power generation is a relatively new experience. In recent months, Pakistan has shown a paradigm shift in its renewable energy policy and invested on mega power plants based on solar PV system. This paper reviews the recent exponential rise of using solar energy for power generation in Pakistan. The results of this paper will not only help in understanding and hence, curbing the power crisis in Pakistan, but will also be relevant to the other countries of the third world.
