Abstract

Without the energy namely electricity no nation can survive. In this industrial world it becomes as oxygen. This report presents the dilemma of shortfall in the supply of electrical energy that is currently faced by Pakistan. This report mainly focuses on the poteintial wind energy in Pakistan.  A condensed history as well as the present situation of the electricity production and its consumption in the country is also discussed. The electricity generation potential of Pakistan in different sectors to produce energy is analyzed. The importance of utilization of coal resources and water resources for the production of electric power is discussed. Pakistan has been blessed with rich and vast renewable energy (RE) resources. These renewable energy resources can play effective and considerable role in contributing towards energy security and energy independence of the country.

 

 

Introduction:

The electricity Pakistan is presently facing a serious energy crisis. Despite strong economic growth during the past decade and consequent rising demand for energy, no meaningful steps have been taken to install new capacity for generation of the required energy sources. Now, the demand exceeds supply and hence “load-shedding” is a common phenomenon through frequent power shutdowns. Pakistan needs about 14000-15000MW electricity per day, and the demand is likely to rise to approximately 20,000 MW per day by 2014. Presently, it can produce about 11, 500 MW per day and thus there is a shortfall of about 3000-4000MW per day. This shortage is badly affecting industry, commerce and daily life of people.

All possible measures need to be adopted, i.e., to conserve energy at all levels, and use all available sources to enhance production of energy. It seems that the government is considering importing energy from Iran and Central Asian Republics and using indigenous sources, such as, hydel, coal, waste, wind, and solar power, as well as other alternate and renewable energy sources, besides nuclear power plants for production of energy. Needless to say that if the country wishes to continue its economic development and improve the quality of life of its people, it has to make serious efforts towards framing a coherent energy policy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wind Energy:

1.      Wind energy (or wind power) describes the process by which wind is used to generate electricity. https://energy.gov/eere/wind/how-do-wind-turbines-work

2.      Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy in the wind into mechanical power. Then a generator can convert mechanical power into electricity2. Mechanical power can also be utilized directly for specific tasks such as pumping water(https://energy.gov/eere/wind/how-do-wind-turbines-work)

3.      Wind is called a renewable energy source because the wind will blow as long as the sun will shine. Use of wind power to produce electricity on a commercial scale has become the fastest growing energy technology.

Pakistan has high potential of renewable energy sources. A very large part of the rural population does not have the facility of electricity because they are either too remote or it is found too expensive to connect their villages to the national grid station. Pakistan being in the sunny belt is ideally located to take advantage of solar energy. This energy sources is widely distributed and abundantly available in the country. During last 15 years Pakistan has shown quite encouraging progress in the use of photovoltaic cells.

Currently electrical power derived from solar energy is being used is being used in some public parks. These include Khalid bin Waleed Park in Peshawar and the Race Course Park in Rawalpindi. If this technology is used in large scale commercial production of electricity the problem of energy shortage can be substantially reduce. Wind energy has also been shown to have strong technical potential in Pakistan, particularly in the southern regions of Sindh and Balochistan. Pakistan has approximately 1000 km of coastline with steady average wind speeds ranging between 5-7 m/s. The projected installed capacity for wind energy projects is estimated at 122.6 GW per year, providing about 212 TW of electricity.

History And Origin OF Wind Energy

Some place in the fogs of pre-history, the tie between humanity, wind and advancement of culture was made. It’s hard to contend against the idea that bridling wind vitality was fundamental for human industrialization, and the fortunes of wind vitality have dependably been fixing intently to the ebb and tide of industrialization.

 

Wind vitality has dependably been utilized to impel vessels, obviously, to name one illustration. A portion of the soonest windmills were utilized as a part of China, in 200 B.C., to pump water and crush grain. In the eleventh century, windmills were utilized widely in the Middle East in the generation of sustenance. The thought was foreign made to different parts of the world, strikingly Europe.

The Dutch basically made the windmill their own. They refined its plan and adjusted it for use in a viewpoint for which it is still broadly connected seepage of water. The Dutch depleted bogs, lakes and even the seabed, and the thought was sent out to the New World.In North America, windmills were likewise adjusted for the age of power.

 

Likewise with the historical backdrop of sunlight based power and of sun oriented warm, the prominence, cost and achievability of wind vitality runs straightforwardly in opposition to that of petroleum products. In the 1970s amid the “Bedouin Oil Crisis,” much consideration was given to wind vitality and different types of sustainable power source. The US government stepped up its inclusion with wind vitality, growing extensive multi-megawatt twist turbines for the improvement of lattice power.

 

It’s essential to take note of that not these undertakings have been fruitful. For instance, a massive 2 megawatt tower worked by General Electric must be destroyed because of issues with low recurrence obstruction. Early disillusionments like this helped put the kybosh on government cash for renewables, regardless of the way that building issues were being settled and vital lessons were being educated.

 

Amid the 1980s and into the 1990s, twist control in the US hit a major subsidence the Reagan organization slaughtered financing and motivators for renewable in many structures, and oil costs balanced out. Likewise, there were proceeding with issues with some breeze turbine plans.

 

At the finish of the Clinton organization, there was a restored enthusiasm for renewable and “green power.” various breeze vitality ventures were affirmed and improvement was continued, with numerous past issues fixed up and a developing consciousness of the finitude of non-renewable energy sources.

 

During circumstances such as the present, there is a developing sense that breeze vitality can be a critical piece of the US vitality blend. There is a 10 megawatt twist plant in Northern Colorado, wind control plants speck the shoreline of California, and more than 2000 megawatts of new limit were included 2001 in the U.S. alone.

modern techniques to utilize wind energy

Wind power is the use of air flow through wind turbines to mechanically power generators for electric power. Wind power, as an alternative to burning fossil fuels, is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation, consumes no water, and uses little land.2 The net effects on the environment are far less problematic than those of nonrenewable power sources.(Wikipedia)

WIND Energy POTENTIAL IN

PAKISTAN

4.      Pakistan has great wind potential, but at present the power units for generating electricity from wind energy are very less as compared to the potential in the country. Pakistan has nearly 1000 km long coastline, which could be consumed for the installation of wind mills.

5.      Considering the worth of the wind resource, Ministry of Science has provided funds to Pakistan Meteorological Department to conduct an extensive wind survey of the coastal areas to assess wind power potential in 2001-2002 3 (Chaudri, 2002).

6.      Recognizing the vast potential that wind energy offers in Pakistan many companies in the private sector, established wind farm along the Sindh coast.

location of wind energy project in Pakistan

According to a USAID report, Pakistan has the potential of producing 150,000 megawatts of wind energy, of which only the Sindh corridor can produce 40,000 megawatts.
