Pakistan’s power supply remained unreliable for many years, disrupting business operations and people’s lives. Huge investments are being made in the recent past to increase power generation capacity. As a result, installed generation capacity increased from 22064 MW in FY2010 to 39772 MW in FY2021 (NEPRA State of Industry Report, 2014 & 2019). Pakistan power sector has rolled from an excess demand (for 14 years) to excess supply and has whimsically played around with the energy mix. While the world moved towards renewable energy, we invested heavily in imported coal and RLNG.
