All is not lost, there is light at the end of the tunnel. There is resolve from the federal government and the provincial government to get the power sector back on its feet, said Engro Energy Limited (EEL) CEO Ahsan Zafar Syed while speaking at the Pakistan Energy Symposium ‘Ushering the Future of Energy’, at a local hotel on Friday.

“There is a critical need to look at and reevaluate the policies that impact the energy sector. Over the years we have heard many issues and their solutions but these are all supply centric, today, we want to break this and take a detour,” he said.

“Instead of a supply centric approach, we want to focus on consumer needs. This won’t just resolve the consumer issues but also the supply problem,” he added.

According to Mr Syed, they were going to take a futuristic approach at the symposium where stakeholders would to look at: planning initiatives, policy interventions, role of technology, private sector interventions and a customer centric industry.

The event was hosted by Engro Energy Limited in collaboration with CORPORATE PAKISTAN GROUP, National Electric Providing Regulatory Authority (NEPRA), Overseas Investors Chamber of Commerce and Industries (OICCI) and Government of Sindh.
