The article presents information about Nadeem Babar, a former energy banker who is helping the Punjab government in Pakistan in installing several small hydro and solar power plants. Hydro plants will use the runoff of the 25,000 miles of irrigation canals to generate 450 megawatts of electricity. Babar worked with Drexel Burnham Lambert during 1988 and also headed the international division of El Paso Corp. He now owns two power plants in Pakistan unrelated to the hydro plans.
