The objective of this webinar is to reflect on • Where is the Global Energy Sector going with Energy Innovation? And where does Pakistan stand? • Will these innovative efforts address the energy trilemma, conservation of and efficiency in the use of energy among individuals with poorly met energy needs in Pakistan? • Do we have government policies/ regulations required to increase consumer acceptance and to facilitate further growth of the renewable energy market and to achieve the goal of “Access for All”? • What are the impediments and drivers to the adoption of ‘smart’ energy system? • Do we have enough energy research and development (R&D) programs which pursues energy efficiency specifically?
