The global energy sector is one of the top emitters of greenhouse gas emissions and therefore,  worldwide efforts are underway to decarbonize this sector. Likewise, in Pakistan the Energy sector contributes to approximately 47 per cent of the total greenhouse gas emissions in the country. This calls for the need for a restructuring of the sector including transitioning to renewable energy sources, and a greater emphasis on energy efficiency for saving energy. 


WWF-Pakistan’s Vision

WWF-Pakistan through its Climate & Energy Programme has been focusing on increasing the energy security in the country through providing clean energy to remote areas, farms and rural households, while also supporting initiatives towards energy conservation and promotion of renewable energy, through facilitation dialogue amongst inter-sectoral stakeholders, technical assistance and implementation.


WWF-Pakistan in partnership with SAMA^Verte/Collaborative Labeling and Appliances Standards Program (CLASP), supported the development of Pakistan Cooling Action Plan (PCAP) between 2021-2023 through wider stakeholders consultations, facilitating the market assessment of cooling appliances and providing research expertise for addressing the data gaps in the cooling sector. The objectives of the plan are as follows:
Accelerate market transition to high efficiency cooling appliances

Transition cooling sector to lower-GWP refrigerants

Increase access to cooling for off- grid and weak-grid communities
Implementation of the PCAP actions has the potential of cumulative reductions (present to 2030) of 28 Mt of CO2e emissions (5 Mt CO2e direct and 23 Mt CO2 indirect) and 50 TWh in energy consumption.

SolaPanda is a practical solution to tackle climate change through provision of renewable energy to off-grid and on-grid communities. This program will ultimately help attain the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) more efficiently, primarily the SDG goal 7 “Affordable and Clean Energy”, SDG goal 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities” and SDG goal 10 “Reduce Inequalities”. Through this program, employees and communities will be trained for installing and maintaining solar systems.  

Corporate partners can adopt this program under their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, to provide safe, reliable and innovative solar energy solutions to communities and offset their carbon emissions to contribute to low-carbon cities.

Under the One Planet City Challenge (OPCC), WWF-Pakistan provided 12 communal biogas plants for 41 households, 1,650 home-based solar units provided to off-grid communities, and 960 households with fuel-efficient stoves and gasifiers in Karachi to enhance energy security and climate resilience in Karachi.
