Description The Government of Pakistan (the Government) is planning to acquire and implement a phased strategy for undertaking a systematic, broad-based national energy efficiency program. The TA will enable the Government to develop and implement a comprehensive energy efficiency sector development and investment program. The TA will design a suitable program proposal that supports the Government efforts to (i) establish an enabling policy and business environment for energy efficiency; and (ii) provide immediate financing of priority projects. Key activities will include (i) in-depth energy efficiency market and economic assessment; (ii) awareness building for energy efficiency through short-term policy and regulatory recommendations as well as developing targeted public relations programs; (iii) strategy and action guidelines for initiating a sustainable long-term national energy efficiency program; (iv) a roadmap for implementing the national energy efficiency program with corresponding investment plans; and (v) design of bankable investment projects.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
Impact Improved energy efficiency represents a least-cost development strategy for Pakistan with substantial benefits to the economy. Establishing a dynamic energy efficiency policy and business environment, while financing priority investment projects, is an essential component of Pakistan's energy policy and energy security strategy.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome The TA will enable the Government to develop and implement a comprehensive energy efficiency sector development program. Efficient energy use in all sectors of the Pakistan economy will slow the overall rate of increase of energy demand to more manageable levels and reduce potential shortages. Improved energy efficiency will also (i) reduce large financial outlays required to develop additional energy supplies in the future; (ii) help minimize uneconomical standby capacity required to cater to peak loads; (iii) reduce subsidy requirements; and (iv) defer transmission and distribution system expansion needs, thereby saving public funds and increasing returns on energy infrastructure investments.
Progress Toward Outcome
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs The TA will design a suitable program proposal that supports government efforts to establish an enabling policy and business environment for energy efficiency, and to provide immediate financing of priority projects. Key activities will include (i) an in-depth assessment of the energy efficiency market and the economy; (ii) an awareness-building program for energy efficiency through short-term policy and regulatory improvement recommendations, as well as targeted public relations programs; (iii) strategy and action guidelines for initiating a sustainable long-term national energy efficiency program; (iv) a road map for implementing the national energy efficiency program with corresponding investment plans; and (v) design of bankable investment projects.
