A portfolio that includes 16 hydroelectric projects is expected to be online by 2020, according to a report given at the 92nd meeting of Pakistan's Private Power and Infrastructure Board (PPIB) this week.

Included in the list of pending hydropower plants are the 665-MWLower Palas Valley and 496-MW Lower Spat Gah hydropower projects, each of which was signed for construction via public-private memoranda of understanding in December 2012.

PPIB also approved the extension of letters of support for the 100-MW Gulpur and 548-MW Kaigah hydropower projects, in addition to authorizing development of the 90-MW Neckeherdim-Paur and 58-MW Turtonas-Uzghor hydroelectric plants.

The board also reported that the 84-MW New Bong complex will be commissioned next month and work on the 147-MW Patrind is progressing quickly.

In all, PBIB said as much as 7,032 MW of installed capacity will be added to Pakistan's power supply by hydropower by the end of the decade.
