Government of the Punjab
Energy Department

Pakistan has been facing substantial shortages in the power sector and the province of Punjab is no exception. In Punjab, at present, there is a demand-supply gap of about 4000 MW which is increasing at a rate of 6% per annum. Punjab with 68% of the consumption of generated power and gas is worst affected and has to endure both power and gas load shedding with adverse social and economic consequences.


Following the 18th amendment in the Constitution of Pakistan, the provinces are now vested with full authority to develop power projects of any capacity through public or private sector and establish required regulatory framework. In view of lingering energy crisis and opportunity provided by the new enabling framework, the Government of the Punjab decided to play a pro-active role in the energy sector. An independent Energy Department has accordingly been established to vigorously pursue power generation and oil & gas projects in the province.
