Title

Alternate Energy as a Sustainable Energy Resource in Pakistan

Abstract/Description

The energy crisis of Pakistan is a reality. Researchers have emphasized that renewable energy is the solution for Pakistan’s energy problem. This paper in its first part of analysis presents the overview of the potential of alternate energy in Pakistan. It discovers the prospects of nuclear power in Pakistan and use of renewable energy for economic activities. Further, the impact of GDP growth, none-renewable energy consumption and renewable energy consumption has been examined on carbon dioxide (CO2) emission in Pakistan. The ARDL model was executed and the results showed that in Pakistan, non-renewable energy consumption has significantly contributed in CO2 emission which is not a good indicator.
