Renewable in % Electricity Production

AEDB, Alternative Energy Development Board, is the national agency for the promotion of renewables.

A new Alternative and Renewable Energy (ARE) Policy was published in 2019, which includes a target of at least 20% of alternative and renewable energy (excluding hydroelectricity) in the power capacity in 2025 and 30% in 2030. With hydropower, this corresponds to a share of 60%.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions

In its INDC, Pakistan announced its targets to reduce its GHG emissions by up to 20% relative to a BAU scenario in 2030, subject to international financial support.

CO2 emissions from fuel combustion dropped slightly in 2018 to around 185 MtCO2, following a period of rapid increase (8%/year over 2013-2017). Before that, they had remained stable over 2007-2013. In 2018, they were about 3 times higher than in 1990.
