Pakistan’s energy and power sector is undergoing significant transformation since the Pakistan-China Economic Corridor. With the changing trends in relation to sources, a complex set of variables, including transmission and distribution restrictions, resource availability, pricing, and technological advancements, define our current and future generation, transmission, and distribution needs. Government projections indicate that major investment in these sectors will be required in the future years. This has created new opportunities for local and international power developers, related businesses, and their customers.
The scope of our practice includes both conventional power project and renewable sources. We assist our clients with project structuring, tax planning, regulatory compliance, EPC contracts, project and conventional loan and equity financing, as well as site lease and acquisition.
