This paper discusses the renewable energy sector and the role satellites can play in its development and deployment. Satellite based sensors can provide useful information regarding the renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, biodiesel and hydropower. This paper also discusses the concept of distributed power generation and how the renewable energy power can be used to implement the concept. Satellites can not only be used to introduce renewable energies in already developed metropolises but also help identify the potential areas for different resources in different regions, thus helping the planners to include the renewable energy power generation during planning phases. Paper has also looked upon the status of energy in Pakistan and how Pakistan can use renewable energy to diversify its energy mix and meet its growing energy demands.
