  • The country targets a share of 10% of wind and solar in power capacity in 2030 (IGCEP).
  • Since the war in Ukraine, gas imports are no longer considered a promising option, leading to a switch to coal.
  • The public oil and gas E&P companies are planned to be privatised.
  • Both state-owned companies and IPPs are active in the electricity sector.
  • Two nuclear units of 1 GW each were commissioned in 2021 and 2022.
  • The share of gas in the power mix has decreased by 8 points since 2018, while the share nuclear progressed by 7 points.
  • Energy prices have increased significantly since 2020 (+80% for diesel and gasoline, doubling for electricity prices in industry).
  • Primary energy consumption dropped by 10% in 2022, after a rapid progression between 2014 and 2021.
  • Biomass supplies one third of total energy consumption, with a stable share since 2010.
  • Households and services absorb around half of the final consumption.
  • Over 20 GW of power projects are under construction.
  • Pakistan plans to quadruple its domestic coal-fired capacity.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy oversees the energy sector through two divisions:the Petroleum Division, in charge of oil and gas supply, as well as of energy and mineral resources, and the Power Division. The Ministry was created in 2017 from the merger of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources and the Ministry of Water and Power.

  • Energy Supply


    Oil production has fluctuated around 4-5 Mt since 2012 (4.1 Mt in 2022). Production supplies around 20% of the country's needs. Crude oil imports decreased slightly to 7.5 Mt in 2022, after two years at a higher level (about 9 Mt in 2020 and 2021).

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices for households have remained steady since 2020 (US$6.6c/kWh), while prices for industry have nearly doubled to US$14c/kWh in 2023.

    In 2023, industry prices were higher than in India (by 45%).


  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita consumption is about 0.5 toe, including 478 kWh of electricity (2022).

    The country's total consumption dropped by 10% in 2022, after a rapid increase between 2014 and 2021 (4%/year). The progression was more moderate between 2008 and 2013 (1.5%/year).


  • Issues & Prospects

    As part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) initiative, China has pledged more than US$50bn in financial support to improve Pakistan's transport and energy infrastructure in order to end its ongoing power shortage crisis and boost trade from China's landlocked north-west region to Pakistan's Gwadar Port.
