GP Energy is a social innovation project initiated by Global Pakistan to address the critical energy deficit issue in the country. Pakistan is in dire need of an alternative energy solution like Solar. Many rural parts of the country still do not have access to electricity, and urban regions that do have access are facing an increasing energy deficit crisis, with power failure reported at 16-18 hours per day in some cities. This has led to frustration, riots and strikes by the masses, in addition to health issues and work inefficiency as temperatures go above 45 degree celcius in the summer season. The demand-supply energy gap is widening at an alarming rate, with an average of 8% per annum increase reported in the 2011-2012 fiscal period. GP Energy has tried to address this energy crisis by promoting Solar Energy as an alternative energy solution. To-date, several solar panels have been installed in various rural and urban areas in the last 6 months. The company's Solar Innovation Model addresses 4 dimensions: (1) Dedicated solar solutions, (2) hybrid solutions, (3) small DC packages for remote areas where no national grid is available, (4) Tailor-made solutions of all sorts.
