The deficiency of electricity in our country is a concern for all. If steps aren't taken to help stabilize the situation, an enormous shortfall of electricity would be inevitable. Pakistan is facing power shortage. In a report it is claimed that Pakistan has faced 1000 to 2000 MW shortage of power. And it wills likely face 3000MW next year.
Pakistan has been facing an unprecedented energy crisis since the last few years. The problem becomes more severe during summers. However, this winter was no different. During the peak crisis there was a power outage of 3-4 hours every day. Those without generators and UPS faced tremendous problems. The prices of both continued to increase due to a sharp increase in their demand.
Almost two years ago the then WAPDA chairman who happens to be a caretaker minister admitted that WAPDA cannot meet the current demand for electricity. It’s surprising that such a senior and experienced person took so long to find this out. On top of that the government which talked about Pakistan’s supposedly booming economy failed to understand the gravity of the situation. General Musharraf (R) after becoming Chief Executive used to talk about building dams especially Kalabagh Dam. This was one of the many promises he failed to keep. Even after that very few power plants have been set up to meet the demand for electricity. During the second government of Benazir some independent power plants were set up. Had they not been setup then we would have had a much bigger crisis with life almost coming to a standstill.
The addressed problem has no quick solutions but measures for the future can be taken. First of all we have to realize the importance of these Dams. In coming years the shortage of energy is going to more than 3000 MW so we have to utilize our natural resources by making Dams on the blessed sites since hydro energy is the cheapest way to overcome this crisis.

Another problem associated with excessive irrigation on poorly drained soils is waterlogging. This occurs (as is common for salinization) in poorly drained soils where water can't penetrate deeply.
The raised water table results in the soils becoming waterlogged
The raised water table results in the soils becoming waterlogged
Salinity is the saltiness or dissolved salt content of a body of water. It is a general term used to describe the levels of different salts such as sodium chloride, magnesium and calcium sulfates, and bicarbonates.
PROBLEM DUE TO WATER SHORTAGE
• Lack of Awareness.
• Rising Imbalance between supply and demand leading to inter provincial tension
• Misuse of Water leads to Environmental Degradation.
Energy Crisis in Pakistan is one of the severe challenges the country is facing today. Electricity, gas, water, fuel is essential part of our daily life and its outage has severely affected the economy and overall living of ours. Thousands have lost their jobs, businesses; our daily life has become miserable. Pakistan is currently facing up to 18 hours of electricity outage a day, is expected to face more if not dealt with in time.
The purpose of this study is to analyze the nature of energy crisis and to propose some short-term as well as long-term solutions to this problem.
Our study finds some major wholes in our system if they are covered up we can not only overcome the deficiency of electricity in our systems but also we can be able to export it to our neighboring countries.
Water flowing in the rivers has kinetic energy. One they are used
to drive the turbine and produce electricity the power generated
as hydel energy. Power produced by the turbine depends on
quantity of water flowing/minute and the head of water available.
Mostly river flows by melting glaciers on High Mountain.
One the water starts flowing in the valley its changes
its head very rapidly. This energy can be converted into
Two methods are normally used:
In case of Dams the water flow is restricted by
the making a huge storage device and the head
of water is increased, the water then is allows to
flow by means of gates and pass through the
turbine, the head of reservoir level is maintained
to provide uniform power and the water stored in
the season additionally is used for irrigation
purpose in the dry season.
Run of the river projects
In the run of river project the water is diverted through the tunnel and once it gain the head allowed to fall and pass through the turbine and back too river. The water in these projects is continuously flowing and not being stored.
Geographical situation is paramount importance in choosing the suitable site for
the hydel project and it evolves a very serious time and money consuming study.
Once a site is located further detailed feasibility study is required before preceding
any serious effort to start the work.
The feasibility study should include following field work.
1: Detailed Mapping of the area.
2: River flow data.
3: Weather data contain Temperature, Pressures, Rain Humidity.
4: Water sampling and testing.
5: Environmental study.
6: Social impact.
7: Identification of stake holders of the area.
The energy crisis starts from 1990 and still Pakistan is in the crisis
of these all as before. The latest and perhaps the most troublesome
crisis faced by the Pakistani nation these days is the shortage in
supply of electricity. The country is facing a huge electric power
crisis these days. Though it has been more than a year since when
the country is facing this crisis, but till now no proper solution has
been made to this problem neither any proper planning has come
into existence since the symptoms and begging of this short supply
of electricity. While rolling blackouts or load shedding as it is
locally known has always been a staple of daily life in Pakistan,
the problem has become acute in the last couple of years.
This crisis appears insurmountable in the near or even
long-term future, unless proper understanding and
correct implementation is undertaken on priority
basis. At present total power production capacity in
the country is about 19,500 MW, out of which Hydel
Power is only 6,500 MW, balance of 13,000 MW is
thermal either using Natural Gas or Furnace Oil.
Small capacity of 450 MW is Nuclear and only
150 MW is through coal.
It is very important to understand the consequence of the prevailing
situation. Current price of furnace oil is about Rs.49,000 per ton,
which amounts up to Rs.49/- per kg. On an average one kg of furnace
oil produces 3.8 kWh of electricity. Thus, the cost of furnace oil for
generating one unit of electricity is about Rs.13. On top of this the
fixed cost of a thermal plant works out to be about Rs.3 per unit.
Therefore, one unit (kWh) of the electricity produced by all thermal
plants using furnace oil is Rs.16 per unit. According to WAPDA/IPP
agreement, the private power producers will charge WAPDA the
actual fuel cost for which they have a direct contract with PSO. As
we all know that WAPDA tariff charged from the consumers is about
Rs.5 per unit (kWh).

Hydel Power Stations
Should hydroelectric power be encouraged
I believe the answer to be a cautious ‘Yes’.
Although it is feasible for large scale hydroelectric power projects to be developed in our country which is a great opportunity for us. We can easily overcome our energy crisis by building the above discuss projects. So we have to motivate our government and make them realize how vital these projects are.
The benefits of electricity are undisputable for both economic and social development, and if the balance is between providing electricity that reduces the human mortality rate and protecting the environment, the former must be chosen. To choose the latter is arrogance on our part, sitting in well-lit comfy buildings, legislating for an effect that will never harm us.
These projects would not only help stabilise electricity tariff by
increasing ratio of low-cost hydel electricity in the national
grid but also rid dependence on imported oil.
Economic growth of Pakistan is not possible without resolving water and energy crises. “Petrol and power prices will be equal in future and implementation on the 5 Dam Plan is inevitable for the survival of Pakistan
There was a need to educate the public as well as leaders regarding benefits of building dams including Kalabagh dam for which facts and figures were required from Water & Power experts. Mr. Bashir Malik said that 8% of the total available water resources of Pakistan is used for domestic while 92% for irrigation.
Pakistan is facing a major energy crisis due to huge difference between demand and supply of electricity. The country is facing a serious shortfall of 4500MW to 5500MW per day at peak hours. This shortage has paralyzed our industry, commerce and everyday life. Basically the issue is because of corrupt and unstable governments, mafia groups, mismanagement in public sector, irresponsible bureaucracy, lack of political will and negative power politics in Pakistan. It also shows failure of policies and practices of our successive governments. It seems there is no proper planning to overpower the giant of energy crisis. Proper attention has not been given to the soaring demand for energy that may be 44% over the next decade
No special efforts have been made to generate required energy sources. It’s high time Pakistan explored all possible energy resources for its growing energy demand. The uninterrupted supply of energy can change the destiny of the nation. The consumption of energy in domestic, industrial, trade, agriculture and commercial sector is increasing day by day. The rising demand of the energy and increasing sale of electric and electronic appliance may lead a part of the country into darkness. Pakistan can produce approximately 15,000MW to 19, 800MW electricity per day in the current session. The long and short term plans for the production of the energy should be based on several resources such as natural gas, thermal energy, hydropower, coal, solar energy, nuclear power plants, waste, wind, and other useful energy sources. These plans and projects should be opted by Federal as well as Provincial governments. Pakistan should not put all her eggs in one basket.
