The Economist Intelligence Unit expects Pakistan's energy consumption to increase at an annual growth rate of 3.4% over the forecast period (2019-23), rising from an estimated 106.5m tonnes of oil equivalent (toe) in 2019 to 121.6m toe in 2023. The country will continue to suffer from a significant imbalance between energy demand and supply, owing partly to poor electricity production and transmission infrastructure, and low oil and gas reserves.

As an importer of hydrocarbons, Pakistan will benefit from subdued global oil prices, which will underpin economic growth and curb inflation in 2019-23. Political instability, environmental concerns, and weak infrastructure and investment will continue to limit exploitation of substantial domestic coal reserves.

A major gap between electricity generation and demand has, in recent years, led to chronic power shortages in Pakistan, holding back economic growth. The country had a generation capacity shortfall of 6-7 GW as at mid-2018. Over one-third of households are not connected to the grid, and are instead obliged to use kerosene or candles for lighting and biomass for cooking.
