It is a universal fact that the socio-economic progress of a
country is compulsorily dependent upon the performance of the energy sector, as
the energy sector derives the engine of growth and development in agricultural,
industrial, and defense sectors, in addition to impacting domestic users. The
increasing gap between demand and supply of energy has brought economic
progress to a standstill. This gap resulted so many industries to shut down or
transferred from here to Bangladesh and other country so these were those
industries which were forecasted to be run and grow in future. Pakistan has a
huge potential of energy besides their own natural resources it is an energy
corridor between Middle East and central Asian countries but Pakistan’s energy
sector fails to secure its needs.
The main objective of this study is to analyze Pakistan’s
energy crisis, it’s worsening situations and future prospects that how Pakistan
can overcome this issue.
This project report will explore the question, why has
Pakistan not been able to overcome energy crisis? It is a universal phenomenon
that the socio-economic progress of a state is significantly dependent upon the
performance of the energy sector, as the energy sector drives the engine of
growth and development in agricultural, industrial, and defense sectors, in
addition to impacting domestic users.
In Pakistan, the
increasing gap between the demand for and the supply of energy has brought
economic progress to a standstill. A number of industries have been closed due
to this increasing gap, which is expected to grow even further in the future.
Despite huge indigenous potential and its geographical significance as a
potential energy corridor between the Middle East and Central Asia, Pakistan’s
energy sector fails to secure its energy needs. The goal of this thesis is to
evaluate why Pakistan’s energy crisis is worsening day by day and how the country
can best secure its energy needs
The main objective of my study is
to find out whether line loses of electricity is responsible for load shedding
in Pakistan or high demand of electricity due to intense heat in summer or low
and inefficient installation of new power plants is responsible for the
So here I will try to produce and
test these variables and point out the responsible factors which cause load
shedding. In this study we will also study the ratio of growth in consumption of electricity and production of
electricity. I will also overview the past trends of electricity demand and
supply as well as present and future trends and also study the government
approaches and strategies to overcome the energy crisis in the country.
of the study:
This study enables us to understand
the causes of load shedding problem in Pakistan. This study will show us the
total demand and supply of electricity and province wise consumption and
production of electricity and total capacity from different natural resources.
The study will also help us to point out that how much growth is needed to
overcome this issue. It will also show us the high consumption units like
commercial or domestic and so we will be able to point out and balance the
There are two sources of data collection i-e primary and
secondary sources of data. Data can be collected by visiting any supplier group
like Islamabad Electric Supply Company (IESCO) and questionnaire is also
suitable for data collection. My study is based largely on historical working
like past demand and supply of energy so data can be collected from magazines,
newspapers and internet.
Is line loses of electricity is responsible for load shedding in Pakistan
or high demand of electricity due to intense heat in summer or low and
inefficient installation of new power plants is responsible for the problem?
