Total Energy Consumption
Per capita consumption is about 0.51 toe, including 550 kWh of electricity (2019).
The country's total consumption experienced a slight decrease in 2019, by 1% to 110 Mtoe, after a period of significant increase between 2013 and 2018 (4.5%/year); the progression was more moderate between 2008 and 2013 (1.5%/year).

Crude Oil Production
Oil production has fluctuated around 4-5 Mt since 2014 (4.8 Mt in 2019). Production supplies just over 20% of the country's needs. Crude oil imports reached 8.5 Mt in 2019, corresponding to a drop by 20%, that comes after years of steady increases (+8%/year over 2011-2018).

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%. In 2020, Pakistan announced its intention to reach 27 GW of solar by 2047.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
In its NDC, 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 by 2% in 2019 to around 199 MtCO2, after a period of rapid increase (8%/year over 2013-2018). Before that, they had remained stable over 2007-2013. In 2019, they were about 3 times higher than in 1990.
The industry, transport, and energy sectors each represent around 30% of the total, while household, tertiary, and agriculture combined account for the remaining 10%.
