This study presents an overview of the status of energy consumption, associated emissions and their modeling in industrial sector of Islamabad. It critically examined the efficient utilization of the existing resources to reduce future burden of energy demand. For this purpose, a computer based energy model Long range Energy Alternatives Planning System (LEAP) was used to project the future energy demands. The base year 2012 was extrapolated till year 2042 for calculating the future energy projections. In alternative scenarios the feasibility of future scenarios based on the potential and use of resources was analyzed with the aim of determining their possible impacts on the energy system. The study described a simplified integrated approach that could enable to formulate policies for sustainable development and to limit the future demand for energy as well as to reduce air pollution from industries in Islamabad.
