Water provision stressed to start new power projects

| | No Comments


STAFF REPORT LHR: Power sector experts have urged the planners to keep the availability of water in mind while planning new power projects since almost all of Pakistans energy systems are linked with water system.


While talking to media, they warned that water scarcity could badly impact the long-term viability of energy projects, which could slow down economic uplift.


To mitigate the risks of the challenge, the World Bank has launched Thirsty Energy to help countries prepare for an uncertain future by quantifying tradeoffs and identifying synergies between water and energy resource management.


Pakistan needs both energy and water security for its economic development, said power expert Mohsin Syed.
