Abstract


In recent era energy is the basic need for the human development, and it is a serious concern, directly or indirectly, in the whole practice of an advancement. Energy plays a key role in socioeconomic growth and social prosperity of any country. It is investigated that  about one-third of Pakistan’s population has no electricity. Globally, Pakistan is a power lacking country, however deficient in conventional resources, Pakistan is rich in resources such as: water, wind and solar energy, etc. Pakistan should utilize natural assets on an urgent basis to overcome the power crises. Besides that the wind energy is an abundant renewable sources for the generation of electricity in Pakistan. However, in this manuscript we selected five suitable zones of wind potential to investigate and utilize free sources for power generation. Efforts are needed for exploitation of wind potential in the countryside.
