An evaluation of energy and electricity in Pakistan
MetadataShow full item record
Pakistan is a developing country and it can only move forward once the energy sector is secure and self sufficient. Right from the beginning the country has constantly faced energy shortages in all sectors due to incompetent policies and governence. This study frames the analysis of the current energy situation with main focus on electricity. All the factors which are hampering the growth of the energy sector are identified and potential solutions are discussed. Matching the electricity supply and demand is the ultimate goal therefore a forecast analysis (multiple regression model) based on seasonal variation in temperature is performed in order to predict the future electric consumption and help authorities take necessary actions for fulfilment. Finally a comprehensive detail is provided on the causes and problems of the energy crisis and potential solutions and reforms are provided.
