Inaugurating the two-day Northern Regional Science Congress here, Abdullah said the country was planning to produce 80 per cent renewable energy through biomass, sun and ethanol, to reduce dependence on coal imports from Australia, Africa and Indonesia.

He said wind energy was another area where each year there were plans to increase generation by 300 MW. Tie-ups with Denmark for this project were underway, he added.
