USAID and Pakistan are working together to help Pakistan meet Pakistan’s growing energy demands and to alleviate the country's energy crisis. USAID has supported infrastructure and operational improvements, and promoted policy reforms to help the energy sector function more efficiently and sustainably.
- Nearly 33 million Pakistanis have benefited from USAID’s efforts since 2011 to add more than 2,800 megawatts of electricity to the national grid. This total includes 1,013 megawatts from new or rehabilitated dams and thermal power plants, and 1,791 megawatts from improvements in the transmission and distribution system.
- Customers are receiving more accurate energy bills as a result of USAID’s efforts to install or repair over 250,000 meters.
