Planning Commission holds petroleum, water and power responsible for energy crisis

Finding lack of coordination between the ministries of water and power and petroleum as contributing towards energy crisis, the Planning Commission has proposed setting up of a think tank Pakistan Energy Research and Information Centre to address the issue. A workshop on Pakistan Integrated Energy Model highlighted that due to lack of coordination between two energy ministries was contributing more towards energy crisis. To overcome the energy crisis, it proposed setting up of an energy think tank Pakistan Energy Research and Information Centre (PERIC). Chairing the meeting Deputy Chairman Dr Nadeemul Haque supported the concept of PERIC.
He said he fully supported the vision to setup PERIC as a reputable center of excellence for energy which was self-financed and financially sustainable. PERIC will create the enabling environment for development and dissemination of integrated energy sector analysis and studies for sustainable solutions. It will also help in developing of Pakistani expertise and intellectual skills in specialised areas and promotion of international best practices. At the end of the workshop it was envisaged that PERIC will serve as a successful platform which will not only act as a panacea for the on-going energy crisis but it will also help Pakistan expedite economic development thus will result in brining benefits to society at large.
