ABSTRACT
The article reports on the impacts of continuous power shortages in Pakistan and discusses the strategies the country must undertake to respond to these energy-related problems. Continuous power shortage could impair the current pace of economic growth of the country. To overcome the energy shortage, Pakistan needs to exploit other alternative renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy.
