Pakistan is currently facing an energy crisis and the province of Punjab, with over a 90 million population, is worst hit. Punjab's power consumption is 68%, with a demand growth of 6-8% per annum. Presently, there is a demand-supply gap of 4000 MW. Punjab is currently facing both electricity and gas load shedding.The Energy Department was established on 5th July, 2011 on the initiative of Chief Minister Punjab, Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif, as a response to the energy crisis and to spearhead Punjab Government's efforts to exploit its energy sources and initiate power projects in the public and private sector.

 

The purview of the department is constantly expanding, with more responsibilities and powers being devolved to the provinces in the wake of the 18th Amendment to the Constitution of Pakistan.The Energy Department has a vision of fully tapping Punjab's indigenous energy potential, which is Hydropower, Solar, Biomass and coal. The Department and its attached bodies are fully engaged with the Federal and international entities, and also encouraging the private sector to invest in the power sector.  Our motto is "Invest in Punjab"
