The development of these areas is hindered by the absence ofthis crucial amenity. Pakistan suffers from massive energy deficits, whereby installation of high voltage infrastructure would nothave the desired effect upon alleviating current and future energy needs. A focus on local energy sources, which can tap the localenvironment to fulfill the energy requirements is required. Decreasing capital costs of these technologies and improving theirlong-term viability is a key driver. PPAF's support for energy projects is planned with a view towards energy independence forcommunities. PPAF has been working in the Renewal Energy(RE) sector for more than 10 years and is now expanding this program to become sector developer in this field. A third of thepopulation in Pakistan is off-grid and there is a need to utilize the available renewable energy resources for the benefit ofrural, poor communities. International donor community is now focusing on financing renewable energy and climate changeinitiatives, therefore PPAF and its partners must be ina position to accept the challenge and play its role in a much effectivemanner. PPAF has worked onthe deployment of renewable energy projects since 2003 by financing small community scale hydropower projects, based on the demandfrom the community and requests from partner organizations; and the investments were thenextended to other RE technologies likesolar, wind and biogas in 2006. PPAF is now moving towards making rural communities energy independent. It is doing this through anexpert group supported by key partnersto upscale the renewable energy activities in Pakistan. This group will work to shifting theparadigm by promoting the spread of RE technologies with a focus on quality and creating awareness within the massesto makeprojects more sustainable.
