CCoE approves summary for removal of transmission constrains

The Cabinet Committee on Energy (CCoE) has approved a summary of the Transmission System Constraints Removal Plan to ensure better transmission of power across the country.

The summary was approved when CCoE met with Federal Minister for Planning, Development, and Special Initiatives Asad Umar in the chair. The meeting was informed that the peak transmission capacity of the national grid system in July 2018 was 20,811MW, and in August 2021 it was 24,564MW. The government has planned to increase the transmission capacity to 33,500MW 2023.

The CCoE appreciated the work done by the Power Division and directed that in order to implement the ambitious plan, the Power Division should keep a track of the developments.

Once the constraints are removed not only unmet demand will be served in the country but merit order exceptions will also be reduced.
