ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif has decided to increase the capacity of the National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (NEECA).

The prime minister chaired a review meeting on measures to save energy in the country, wherein, the meeting was further informed that the draft of the National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Policy will be presented for approval in the cabinet meeting very soon.

The prime minister established an inter-ministerial steering committee under Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to enhance the capacity of the NEECA and reform it.

He also expressed his displeasure at the performance of the NEECA and the deficiencies in its capacity. The inter-ministerial committee should take steps to make the NEECA active immediately.

The experts of the NEECA have given action plans to the ministries for efficient energy saving in the construction, industrial, communication, and power and agriculture sectors.

The meeting was informed in detail about the current capacity of the NEECA and its mandate. The meeting was told that no substantial steps have been taken to increase the capacity of the NEECA besides briefing about its budget.

The prime minister emphasized making a comprehensive plan regarding the reforms of the NEECA to determine the time of necessary steps and to ensure these steps within a specified period.

Instead of these useless meetings, implement few straight forward measures to save energy.. Stop manufacturing of old technology appliances, duty free import of solar equipment and encourage household to use and encourage to connect to grid.. .. Expensive power generation will save lot of money as alternate energy takes over and supplement....Road transport to shift on new efficient engines, 10-15 years old trucks buses to be scrapped... Bring discipline in traders daily timings, continuing of businesses till late hours should stop, though announced but no implementation..Prepare nation to understand and involve them to implement and switch over... Media house to be bound as part of public service to make public aware of energy conservation.
