Omar acknowledged Denmark’s lead role in clean and green energy globally and said that Pakistan has embarked upon tapping the vast indigenous potential of renewable energy.

He said that the authorities had set ambitious targets to begin 25% renewable energy projects by 2025 and 30% by the end of 2030.

This includes a 45% share of hydel power generation and 10% of nuclear energy into the country’s energy mix.


Omar also stressed that the government has the political commitment and requires innovative ways to expand energy access, promote renewable energy, and increase energy efficiency to meet the country’s growing needs.

The minister also urged joining hands-on projects like manufacturing wind turbines and solar panels, reducing energy wastage, and enhancing the system’s transmission capacity.

The Danish ambassador welcomed the government’s commitment to refurbish the energy sector and said that the new policy is more transparent as it grants a level playing field for all.

She expressed that the GtG agreement would be based on equal partnership.

Its main focus is to set up a joint energy group to exchange experience at both policy and operational levels so that both the countries would establish long-term strategic collaboration in the energy sector.
