After investigations in the mountains of Pakistan, the German government agency GTZ has identified potential sites for six high-head hydro plants: Khan Khwar (72MW), Golen Gol (106MW), Daral Khwar (35MW), Summar Gah (28MW), Neelum-Jhelum (963MW) and Allai Khwar (130-150MW).

Herbert Kuntz of GTZ said that findings from the expedition have been compiled into a databank holding the details of ‘scores’ of sites in the area, ranging from 500kW to 1500MW.
