    Busting The Myths Series

    Step into the realm of truth with Renewables First as we debunk prevalent misconceptions surrounding renewable energy through research evidence. Contrary to popular belief, Pakistan doesn’t need to hinge solely on non-renewable sources for baseload power. Far from consuming vast land areas, wind energy proves space-efficient and potent. The notion of gas being an essential mid-transition fuel comes under scrutiny, and we challenge the widely-held view that local coal remains the most economical choice for Pakistan. The series helps us separate myth from reality and champion a sustainable energy future.

    Baseload - 01

    Renewable energy can be a reliable source of electricity in Pakistan, and the idea of a baseload problem is a myth. It's time to challenge the persistence of baseload bias in Pakistan's energy planning and embrace renewable energy as a viable and reliable source of electricity.
