Research and Markets: Private Participation and Legislations in the Pakistan Power Sector

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xnkjdk/private) has announced the addition of the "Private Participation and Legislations in the Pakistan Power Sector" report to their offering.

Pakistan has a population of 179.16 million and a gross domestic product of $231.18 billion as of 2012 (World Bank, 2013). Thermal and hydropower generation dominates its electricity sector and most of the thermal capacity is based on costly gaseous and liquid fuels. Due to this and the huge foreign dependency on fuel imports, the sector is presently experiencing a circular-debt crisis and stakeholders in the value chain have started defaulting payments.

In order to attract investment and reduce the cost of electricity, Pakistan is moving to coal-based capacity, which could provide a long-term solution to the electricity shortage. The power industry is dominated by government-owned enterprises, despite the presence of private players. Pakistan has seen foreign investment in its power sector in the past and overall has found the model successful.

The central regulatory agency set up to provide returns to the private sector has addressed many of the private developers' issues through its recommendations to the government and the introduction of a rational tariff structure.
