Integration of Climate-Specific Energy-Efficient Building Design Interventions in the Pakistani Sector

Pakistan, the fifth most populous country of the world, has been facing an energy crisis for the past two decades with power outages throughout the country year round. The housing sector consumed 45% of the total generated electricity from July 2019 to February 2020 and is projected to become the biggest consumer of the two main energy sources (electricity and gas) in the country by 2030. Pakistan’s carbon dioxide emissions from residential buildings are the highest as compared to the countries that have greater populations.

The goal of this study is to explore possible energy-efficient building design interventions with minimal energy use and carbon footprint for the residential sector while keep-ing the climate diversity of Pakistan under consideration.
