According to some geologists, Pakistan has the potential to generate almost 100,000 MW of electricity using geothermal energy. The US has also acknowledged the country’s ability and potential, and has shown interest in helping with monetary investment. This source of energy will also help Pakistan become a pollution-free country as well since the method doesn’t involve fuel combustions. The process is simple and hassle-free: water (at 300 degree C) in hot springs that are found all over the country is pumped out and is used for running turbines.
These turbines and plants are capable of producing electricity for 24 hours. The authorities concerned must look into this opportunity to develop more clean energy for the country. That the entire country is facing power outages calls for the government to look into alternative solutions. Using hot water springs will be a costeffective measure. Therefore, the authorities should consider adopting this method for the production of electricity.
