The Cost of Unserved Energy: Evidence from Selected Industrial Cities of Pakistan

Published By: PIDE on eSS | Published Date: April, 01 , 2011

This study is an attempt to explore the cost of unserved energy due to power outages in Pakistan that started in 2007. The study is based on a survey conducted for four major industrial cities of Punjab—Gujrat, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, and Sialkot. In addition to quantification of output losses, the effect on employment, cost of production, and delay in supply orders are also examined. The output loss is quantified using two-dimensional analyses, controlling for variations in the duration of outages and in the shift hours. [PIDE Working Papers 2011: 75]. URL:[]
