Hydropower potential

Pakistan is blessed with enormous hydropower potential—up to remaining some 40,000MW that has not yet been harnessed effectively and optimally, whereas various hydropower project sites have been identified across the country and their technical and economic feasibility determined. In this context the energy policy in vogue, commonly known as Indicative Generation Capacity Expansion Plan (IGCEP) 2021-2030, has focused on utilising indigenous resources for power generation, and thus developing hydropower on a large scale during the decade, aiming at providing affordable, clean, and renewable energy.
