ABSTRACT
The article discusses several ways on how to manage the energy crisis in Pakistan. The recent power breakdown in the country is a result of power shortage and poor transmission and distribution infrastructure. However, the government is only undertaking minor projects and quick fixes to overcome the energy crisis. The author suggests that the government must focus its energy policy on using hydropower, coal-fired units, gas turbines, nuclear projects, and infrastructure development.
