The country's energy demand has grown at an annual consumption growth rate of 4.8% in the past five years. Our energy resources like coal, water, wind, waves, solar, animal waste and nuclear need to be harnessed through an institutionalized strategy for optimum utilization. Therefore, the need exists for a high and sustained growth in energy supply and infrastructure capacity of 7-8% per annum to support the steady growth in the country’s GDP.
Pakistan has embarked upon an ambitious plan to invest $76 billion over the next six years to address energy supply bottlenecks and build quality infrastructure. The Government’s recent developments are assertive to overcome the menace of energy demand by setting out an action plan through effective policies for optimum usage of resources, sound planning and design for energy efficiency and conservation, as well as, its proactive implementation to utilize the available resources astutely and wisely.
IDAP will look for energy efficient and cost effective solutions to achieve this goal.
