List of power stations in Pakistan

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of Power Stations in Pakistan. Pakistan had a total installed power generation capacity of almost 25 GW in 2017. However, dependable or de-rated capacity is approximately 19 GW during the year, due to variety of factors, whereas demand for electricity is increasing at an average annual rate of eight per cent. And according to World Energy Statistics 2011, published by IEA, Pakistan's per capita electricity consumption is one-sixth of the World Average. World average per capita electricity consumption is 2730 kWh compared to Pakistan's per capita electricity consumption of 451 kWh. International Energy Agency has forecast that total electricity demand of the country will be 49,078 MW in 2025.[1]

Pakistan has an installed electricity generation capacity of 25,100 MW in 2017.[2] The average demand is 22,000 MW and the shortfall is between 5,000 and 6,000 MW. Oil (35.2 per cent), hydel (29.9 per cent), gas (29 per cent), and nuclear, solar and imported (6 per cent) are the principal sources. In the next 10 years, peak electricity demand is expected to rise by four to five per cent, which is roughly 1,500 MW. This dismal forecast is due to a lopsided energy mix, diminishing indigenous fuel reserves, increasing circular debt and transmission hold-ups. Pakistan has almost exhausted its gas reserves. Imported oil's price hikes affect the budget and its constant supply cannot be guaranteed. Pakistan has the potential to meet these energy challenges through hydroelectric power, but there are political and environmental issues in building dams. Rationality demands reducing reliance on oil and going for alternatives. The development of alternatives does not happen overnight. Pakistan will have to rely on imported fuels for the interim period at a huge cost. LNG is difficult to import, using coal has environmental issues, using shale gas also has environmental issues attached with it, and wind power has transmission network challenges.[3] With total estimated coal reserves of over 186bn tonnes, Pakistan ranks sixth among coal-rich countries. Yet, coal's potential has not been exploited adequately.[4]

The country has witnessed a marked improvement in power generation as new power plants have come on stream. Average electricity production has increased from 11,804 MW in June 2013 to 18,658 MW in June 2017, which brought average shortfall down from 7,938 MW to 2,888 MW. Now, this shortfall is expected to be bridged by the end of 2017. Furthermore, several wind, solar, coal, LNG, nuclear as well as hydro electric generation projects are nearing completion by the end of 2018. Many mega hydroelectric projects are also under construction all over the country to be completed in next few years or so.

Pakistan also imports huge amount of custom-free GST-free solar panels to bring down shortfall. According to industry reports, the current market demand for solar panels has grown from 350 megawatts (MW) per year in 2013 to approximately 1500 MW in 2017 and this trend is expected to continue in the forthcoming years. Most of the demand is currently met through imported solar systems from China, Germany and the US; local production capacity is limited to approximately 10 MW per year.[5]

Baggase Power[edit]

Bagasse is the crushed residue of sugarcane. It is an excellent raw material for power generation. Pakistan sugar industry is one of the biggest industry in the world and comprises 81 sugar mills with an annual capacity of about six million tons sugar. The industry crushes about 30 to 40 million tons of sugarcane that yields about 12 million tons of bagasse as an industrial waste that has a potential of generating 3000 MW electricity.[145] According to a recent report by National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA), about 16 sugar mills are supplying nearly 120 MW surplus power to electric distribution companies for national grid while many others are producing just enough power for their use only.[146][147]
