Oracle Power launches assessment for a 1.3 GW renewable hub in southern Pakistan

The UK renewable project developer Oracle Power has launched an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) for the development of a 1.3 GW renewable complex in southern Pakistan, aimed at powering a green hydrogen project, which is expected to have an initial production capacity of 55 kt/year. 

The ESIA is for a project in Jhimpir, Sindh Province, that plans for the deployment of 800 MW of solar and 500 MW of wind power capacity, along with a 450 MWh battery energy storage system (BESS). The study has been assigned to the certification company SGS Pakistan.

Pakistan’s new Alternative and Renewable Energy Policy (ARE, 2019) includes a target of at least 20% of alternative and renewable energy (excluding hydroelectricity) in the power capacity in 2025 and 30% in 2030. With hydropower, this corresponds to a share of 60%. In 2020, Pakistan also announced its intention to reach 27 GW of solar by 2047.
