BMI View : A lack of generation capacity, insufficient investment, as well as fuel and water shortages ha ve narrowed the supply/demand margin considerably, negatively impacting economic activity across Pakistan . Supply shortages will be a dominant theme clouding Pakistan's power sector over the near term . Over the medium - to long term, the incorporation of non-hydro renewables into the electricity mix, the surge in coal-fired power generation - and consequently the significant decline in oil-fired power generation - will be the key market dynamics.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

  • Progress in the development of Pakistan's Karachi Nuclear Power Plant highlights the strengthening of China-Pakistan relations and aligns with our view that Chinese funding will play a critical role in new nuclear capacity development in Asia.

  • In May 2015 the Pakistani announced it was drawing up plans to liberalise the power sector. The Electricity Act 2015 will allow private sector participation in building, maintaining and operating a captive power generation plant as well as dedicated transmission infrastructure.
