Delayed efforts in the exploration sector have not been able to find sufficient amounts of energy resources.

So the Two key elements of a possible solution are: change of attitude and change in lifestyles.
The current energy consumption trends in Pakistan are extremely inefficient, well over ten per cent of national electricity can be saved by applying only the first level of energy conservation that is a change in attitude. It.
