In a positive development, Pakistan to initiate indigenous production of solar energy panels
Federal Minister for Science and Technology, Chaudhry Fawad Hussain, has revealed that Pakistan would initiate the indigenous production of solar energy panels within a year and a half.
During an interview with a local media outlet, the minister said: ------------------------------
We will be able to transform free solar power to the batteries. With the rapid technological change, each residential unit will have its separate domestic powerhouse and size of the battery will reduce with its enhanced power.
Meanwhile, one time chargeable 1 million-mile batteries are also being introduced for electric vehicles that would replace the petrol vehicles in the country in the years to come.
The PTI lawmaker added that Prime Minister Imran Khan has also directed the Ministry of Science and Technology to set up 400 science and technology schools all over Pakistan. Initially, 40 of these schools will be established in major cities.
