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 2015. 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.

Key Trends And Developments:

In May 2015, the Pakistani announced that 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.

In January, it was announced that the Pakistani government had approved a net metering scheme for solar power, which would allow solar generators to sell excess power they produce back to the national grid. The government has also decided to cut recently imposed import taxes (of 32.5%) on solar panels. These three developments provide a significant boost to the outlook for solar power in Pakistan, driving demand for panels and supporting the continued expansion of the industry.
