Nepal Solar Week 2019

Nepal Solar Week 2019

Nepal is undergoing an energy transformation with unprecedented activity in increased power generation, use of renewable energy eradication of load shedding and march towards ambitious target to produce 2.1 GW of Solar by 2030.  Despite of having huge resources, the Country has a strong dependence over traditional fuels. The state-owned Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) supply the electricity to approx. 50% of the population which lives mainly in urban areas. Only 8 % of people in rural areas have access to electricity. The low level of electrification hampers both economic development and access to information and education in rural areas. Beside the national grid, thousands of small installations (diesel gensets, solar home systems, small island mini grids etc.) are installed in Nepal. For this small number of customers, average electricity supply is less than eight hours per day, with load shedding accounting for up to 16 hours during winter. The Nepal Government declared a “national energy crisis” and approved an Energy Crisis Management Action Plan.

Nepal has estimated a potential of 3000 MW from Wind, 1830 MW from Solar PV and Additional 2100 MW from grid connected PV.  Nepal also has great potential for at least four types of solar energy technology, grid-connected PV, solar water heaters, solar lanterns and solar home systems. Nepal receives 3.6 to 6.2 kWh of solar radiation per square meter per day, with roughly 300 days of sun a year, making it ideal for solar energy. The country also has a large market for solar water heaters.

The state has pursued a policy of developing and producing renewable energy, ensuring cheap, easily available and dependable supply of energy, and making an appropriate use of it to meet the basic needs of the citizens.
