Challenges to increasing the productive use of hydroelectricity in Nepal

Posted On: 2018-07-10

 

The policy brief on “Challenges to Increasing the Productive Use of Hydroelectricity in Nepal” briefly scrutinizes the energy scenario in the country with recommendations for the future use of sustainable renewable energy mainly hydropower. Continuous and reliable electricity supply is a must for country’s growth, however, along with fossil fuels, import of electricity is gradually increasing annually. In 2016, Nepal imported 1,777.68 GWh (35% of the total- 5,077.14 GWh) electricity from Indian grid. Despite the fact that Nepal is highly dependent on India for petroleum products, Nepal can self-sustain the demand for electricity internally. The increasing number of hydro electricity projects in the country can fulfill the demand for ever increasing energy although it would still take a few more years to come to fruition. Community Rural Electrification Entities (CREE) are community run local level independent power producers with micro hydropower plants installed in multiple rural regions of the country which produced 104.48 GWh (2.81% of the total) in 2016. The regular and unfettered supply of electricity can boost the economic sectors mainly– Agriculture, Industry and Services- and pave the way for the ultimate goal of prosperity and development. To achieve that goal: formulation and implementation of policies on sustainable clean energy are pivotal in ridding Nepal off (a) the dependence on imported fossil fuels, as well as (b) dominance of biomass use inside the country.  Click here to download.
