Energy Crisis in Pakistan is one of the severe challenges the country is facing now-a-days. Electricity, natural gas, water and fuel are essential part of our daily life and its outage has severely affected the economy and overall living of our country. Thousands have lost their jobs, businesses; our daily life has become miserable. Pakistan is currently facing up to 18 hours of electricity outage a day and 2 days of Gas outage a week, is expected to face more if not dealt with in time. A Special Committee was made by the Speaker Youth Parliament of Pakistan on the issue of energy crises in response to the motion put in the house by Muhammad Hammad Malik (YP16-KPK03), Mr. Yasir Riaz (YP12-ICT02) and Mr. Muhammad Taimoor Shah (YP35-Punjab15). Muhammad Hammad Malik (YP16-KPK03) was made the Chairperson. The main purpose of this committee is to analyze the nature of this crisis and to propose some short-term as well as long-term solutions to this problem. For this purpose meetings were arranged with the concerned authorities and also the data was acquired from related departments like Wapda, Thar Coal Power Generation Project and Alternative Energy Development Board. This study is exploratory in nature. We have done our best to conclude and sketch up some recommendations in the light of identified hurdles in the way of implementing the appropriate solution to our problem.
