Summary:
Pakistan is suffering from an acute energy crisis, with an electricity shortfall of approximately 5,000 megawatts per day. This shortfall reflects years of underinvestment and partly implemented reforms.

Abstract:

Pakistan is suffering from an acute energy crisis, with an electricity shortfall of approximately 5,000 megawatts per day. This shortfall reflects years of underinvestment and partly implemented reforms. With supply failing to maintain pace with increased demand, Pakistan must pay increasing amounts for expensive energy imports. Its energy problems have domestic, regional, and, arguably, global implications. This report identifies key causes of the problem and considers how Pakistan could employ energy relationships with other countries to try to better address the situation. How Pakistan pursues its regional energy options to address its domestic energy challenges, and how the world chooses to respond to these decisions, will either increase potentially destabilizing geopolitical competition among regional actors or contribute to new collaboration, strengthening regional ties.
