Industry Overview

Energy crisis in Pakistan had been brewing since 2007 and deepened in 2012 which hugely negatively affected the economic growth. To set Pakistan on a trajectory of rapid economic growth and social development, government is taking measures to overcome overall electricity shortfall of 5,000 MW. It is projected that by the end of the decade Pakistan will be transformed from an energy deficient to a regional exporter of power while the efficiency improvements in transmission and distribution will decrease the high cost of power to the end consumer.
