Energy is the key driver and frequently assume their role play as a catalyst for the sustainable development. Universally the per capita consumption of energy is frequently utilized as a guage for the economic and sustainable development of any country. Sustainable Energy plays a critical part being an imperative segment for the social values, energy poverty eradication and economic development, The huge inadequacy of power because of substantial dependence on imported fuels has turned into a noteworthy obstacle to economic and sustainable growth of any developing country in general and to particular in Pakistan. This situation makes an expansion in nearby fuel costs and cutoff points possibilities in the foundation of new industries. The ongoing gap between the demand and supply of power in Pakistan is around 7000­-8000 MW with a consistent increment of 6­­­­­-8% per annum. Consequently, hence to overcome this situation, sustainable power sources are intensely required to conquer the current issue Pakistan is blessed with enormous sustainable power source assets, for example, wind, sunlight based, hydro, and bio-mass. These resources have the tendency to be major contributors of future energy creation framework, climate change minimization, energy decarboniztion, energy independency, sustainable growth and development of the country. This research narrates the alternative energy resources like renewables, to inrease energy efficiencies and related possibilities for full-scale advancement which can be viable for sustainable development.
