Abstract: Pakistan is an energy deficient country. The gap between energy supply and demand is growing continuously. Major factors behind its energy problems are: lack of infrastructure and planning; high dependence on imported fuels; chaotic law and order situation; and political instability. Pakistan's energy problems are resulting in lower economic and industrial growth.

This research reviews the energy profile of Pakistan, and investigates the potential and viability of renewable energy options for the Pakistan's textile industry. The textile sector is the backbone of Pakistan's economy. Renewable energy options such as wind, photovoltaic (PV), and solar thermal were investigated for this report. The research concludes that solar PV system is a financially viable option for replacing diesel sourced power generation. Finally, the research proposes a policy framework for the effective application and dissemination of renewable energy in Pakistan.
