Abstract

The study has identified poor institutional quality and industrialization behind high energy intensity in Pakistan while income per capita and associated urbanization playing a significant role in reducing energy intensity. For Pakistan being a country in transition, industrialization is expected to rise in future along with its adverse impact on energy intensity. However, economic policies that boost income would help in reducing energy intensity; provided income effect is large enough and sustainable to offset the negative impact of industrialization. Similarly, good governance practices and better quality of institutions can play an effective role in increasing the efficiency in the use of energy thus reducing overall energy intensity
