KE’s 7/11+ Innovation Challenge has been designed for entrepreneurs, startups, researchers, and university students. As a forward-looking utility, KE embraces innovation and looks to embed it in its organizational functions by providing a platform for problem solving through innovative means.

The participants will innovate in the areas of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or will solve specific problem statements identified by KE. Under this program, KE aims to provide networking, mentorship, capacity building, and funding support to innovators working in the areas of Energy, Sustainable Cities, and Customer Experience.


KE is the only vertically-integrated power utility in Pakistan, which means the organization manages all three key areas – Generation, Transmission and Distribution – of producing and delivering energy to consumers. KE has powered Karachi for over one hundred years. Through a network spanning across 6,500 square kilometers, KE supplies power to all residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural areas that fall under the city’s ambit and beyond.

KE is currently serving over 3.2 million customers across Karachi, Dhabeji, and Gharo in Sindh, and Uthal, Winder, and Bela in Balochistan.
