    Hydropower potential in Azad Kashmir

    07/05/2014

    IT is ironic that the hub of national hydropower generation — Azad Jammu and Kashmir — suffers long and persistent power outages, ranging from four to 12 hours.

    Wapda, National Transmission and Dispatch Company and the Islamabad Electric Supply Company are responsible for supplying power from the national grid to about 70pc of AJK’s population of over 3.68 million that is connected to the grid. Currently, the total power demand is just 400MW. Still, the power supply does not meet the present demand.

    Nonetheless, the AJK government is not totally dependent on NTDC and IESCO for power supply, and has constructed a number of power stations over time. At present, 12 small, mini and minor hydropower stations are in operation, with cumulative installed capacity of about 45MW.
    Nine hydropower projects of a cumulative capacity of 15.25MW in Azad Kashmir are scheduled to start commercial operations by December 2014
