China will help diversify energy mix, says President Arif Alvi.

President Dr Arif Alvi said that Chinese investment and contributions to Pakistan’s energy and power infrastructure were increasing the ability of Pakistan to diversify its energy mix of nuclear, hydel, solar and wind energy and helping the country to meet its ever-increasing energy needs.

He said that we should focus on alternate and renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, besides using efficient and critical technologies to minimise the emission of greenhouse gases from coal and oil-based energy sources.

The president expressed these views while talking to the General Manager of China Energy International Group Co Ltd, Lyu Xiufeng, who along with his delegation called on him, at Aiwan-e-Sadr on Thursday.

During the meeting, the President was briefed on Neelum Jhelum, Dasu, Suki Kinari, Azad Pattan and Mohmand hydropower projects and Karachi K2/K3, Bhikki Combined Cycle Power Project, Jhimpir Wind Power Projects and M-4 Motorway projects.
