Abstract

Based on the Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) theory, this research seeks to probe the impact of nuclear and renewable energy on carbon emissions in Pakistan. In order to analyze Pakistan's cointegration from 1990 to 2022, this study uses the ARDL technique. The findings provided empirical support for the Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) theory and demonstrated that the use of nuclear and renewable energy resources is linked to lower carbon dioxide (CO2) over the long term. Carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels, which are used for most of the world's energy needs, have been steadily rising in recent years. Policymakers recognize this and are working to reduce reliance on nonrenewable energy sources while increasing nuclear and renewable energy use.
