Cash-strapped Pakistan should pursue clean energy instead of relying on coal as policymakers rethink plans for building more coal-fired plants.
Coal-fired power is one of the central pillars of Pakistan's energy deals with China, but is a costlier and dirtier alternative to wind or solar energy, which China is also supplying but to a lesser degree.
China is dumping its dirtier coal-fired systems on developing nations while leading the world in renewable resource systems that will find a market in developed countries as they move away from fossil fuels.
