Within Pakistan the rather ease of availability of hydrocarbon gas reserves in Balochistan had the effect of delaying the work on feasibility of renewable energy and installation of appropriate pilot projects. However, with a clear sign of depletion of fossil fuels the present government has initiated a major programme of wind speed measurement and installation of large wind farms at locations that have been deemed fit for this purpose. The key force behind the present resurgence of renewable energy activity within Pakistan is the creation of the Alternative Energy Development Board (AEDB), established by the Government of Pakistan in 2003.
