OGDCL Clean Energy Research Center 

Established the OGDCL Clean Energy Research Center in 2024, which is one of the largest industrial funding in the history of Pakistan, sponsored by the Oil and Gas Development Corporation (OGDCL). Researchers are working towards building an ecosystem of expertise in Green Hydrogen.

Major milestones involve developing a Solar Hydrogen energy system with an aim to lead the transition in Pakistan towards a sustainable future in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Researchers will also work on electrochemical reduction of CO2, purification of wastewater, Artificially Intelligent Load management, Blockchain-based Energy trading and other emerging trends in clean technologies. 
This venture is a step towards advancing sustainable energy solutions and meeting the UN SDG Targets in Pakistan. The research innovative technology promises to revolutionize our energy landscape, offering a reliable and eco-friendly solution to meet our growing energy needs while reducing carbon emissions.
