Infrastructural Constraints on Energy Development: The Case of Pakistan
MetadataShow full item record
Since the mid-1970s, energy planning in Pakistan has focused on (1) reducing the elasticity between economic growth and energy demand and (2) sharply increasing energy investment to augment domestic sources of supply. The Sixth Five-Year Plan (1983-1988) allocation for energy was 38 percent of total public-sector outlays. This represented a 200-percent increase over the achievements of the Fifth Plan. The Seventh Plan period (1988-1993) is continuing this trend, with energy-sector investments accounting for nearly 50 percent of the public investment program in fiscal year (FY) 1989 and 45 percent in FY 1990.

Halcrow, Stephanie D. (Monterey California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2007-12);The amount of energy the United States (U.S.) consumes increases every year and this growth in energy consumption outpaces energy production. To fill this gap, the U.S. imports 35 percent of its energy. More importantly, ...
