Report Published: "Pakistan Power Report Q4 2014"

Pakistan is making a shift towards coal-fired power - in line with our expectations for the sector - and we see growth coming from the public and private sectors. That said, we note the Pakistan power sector remains in a dire state, despite the government's efforts to address power shortages.

In mid-July, Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said the government was building 26 coal-based power projects across the country to deal with the ongoing electricity crisis. We have long said the government should focus on developing coal-fired projects and the announcement by Sharif shows our view is playing out. Meanwhile, the announced decision by a consortium to undertake a 660MW coal-fired project in Jhang also highlights the attractiveness and viability of coal-fired plants to the private sector.

Despite these developments, we note the Pakistan power sector remains in a dire state, despite the government's efforts to address power shortages. The lack of T&D infrastructure, in particular, has had extremely devastating effects on the sector and we have seen private sector players move towards captive (or off-grid) generation in order to bypass grid limitations.
