Description : IFC is taking an initiative to gauge the potential of distributed generation through the deployment of renewable energy technologies in selected industrial estates of Pakistan. After being appointed by IFC to monitor and verify the industrial zones of Pakistan, VTT conducted a training session to build requisite capacities of resources and efficiently deploy survey instruments during the site visits. The team installed relevant GPS coordinate recording software, ensuring data quality across six big industries of Pakistan. Team VTT is gathering statistics about the existing electricity requirement of each tenant, the status of grid power, load-shedding pattern, backup options, and availability of space for renewable technology. VTT will help IFC expand its initiative to assess the potential of distributed generation through the deployment of renewable energy technologies in Industrial Zones to help industries in Pakistan further.
