The darns are also a source of multiple-purpose projects because the water which is stored in dams has potential energy which can be converted into other kinds of energy which is used for different purposes. Hydro electricity which is produced by water is generated from the water which has been stored in dams.( Many hydel power projects in Pakistan are working at the places where dams have been constructed.
