Creation of wind, solar development authority demanded

The government of Sindh should create wind, solar, alternative energy development and manufacturing authority on the pattern of the Sindh Coal Development Authority.
A recommendation to this effect was adopted at the first youth national energy conference. The moot was organized under the auspices of the Sindh Youth Affairs Department, a statement said on Thursday.
Such an authority should be created with an initial fund of Rs 500 million and that youths should be assigned special responsibilities in the set up, it was further recommended. The Youth Affairs Department should conduct energy conservation campaign in all major cities/towns with special funds reserved for such a drive.
The Government of Sindh should legalize energy conservation codes in buildings and introduce eco-friendly buildings, it was further recommended.
All renewable energy equipment be manufactured in Sindh and preferably in all the towns. Special funds be allocated with Public-Private partnership in manufacturing of LEDs.
Universities be involved in decision-making process in order to help bridge the gap between industries and academia. The Sindh Minister for Youth Affairs, Syed Faisal Subzwari, said that the very purpose of holding the conference was to foster awareness among the younger generation and enable them to play their role towards the resolution of the national issues.
