Pakistan seeks renewable resources

Green energy sources could provide close to three million megawatts of energy and help solve the country's power crisis.

    Pakistan is facing an acute power crisis due to limited capacity and billions of dollars in compounding debt because of poor bill collection rates.

    To help solve the growing problem, Pakistan's government has said it is serious about switching to renewable energy alternatives.

    It estimates that alternative sources could provide nearly three million megawatts of energy.
