    How Pakistan Handled One Of Its Largest-Ever Blackouts

    January 25, 2023 - News Point


      New Delhi, Jan. 24 -- Electricity is being restored in Pakistan after a nationwide blackout and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has ordered an investigation into the grid failure that's added to the country's struggle with surging energy costs.A vast swath of the 220 million population were left without power after the national grid failed on Monday morning, forcing hospitals to switch to back-up generators and causing major disruption to mobile and Internet services.Work to restore connections continued into the night in cities including Karachi and Lahore, extending the outages in many locations to beyond 12 hours amid plunging temperatures.Sharif has ordered a probe into the latest blackouts, Energy Minister Khurram Dastgir Khan told reporters late Monday. Low power demand had increased the "vulnerability" of the system, and a "thorough investigation has begun that will consider all possibilities,".
