This volume is based on papers presented at the one-day National Workshop on the topical and vital theme of Solutions for Energy Crisis in Pakistan held on December 17, 2014 at Marriott Hotel, Islamabad. The Workshop was jointly organised and financed by the Islamabad Policy Research Institute (IPRI) and the Hanns Seidel Foundation, (HSF) Islamabad.
We are grateful to the contributors who presented their scholarly papers at the workshop and the chairpersons who presided over the lengthy proceedings and summed up the findings of each session with their valuable comments. We are also thankful to the representatives of public sector institutions who accepted our invitation to participate in the workshop as discussants.
All efforts were made to make the workshop as productive and result-oriented as possible. However, if there was any area left wanting in some respect the workshop management owns responsibility for that.
