Water resources are the major natural resources identified for the development of Nepal. Nepal has a large hydropower potential amounting to 83,000MW. So far less than 1% of total potential has been exploited at present in spite of higher demand resulting in severe load shedding.
To meet the increasing power demand much attention has been given to study different scale projects. The funding requirements for such projects have so far delayed the implementation and have created a critical situation in the power supply. It is therefore utmost important to be involved INPD into the system to expedite the hydro-power in Nepal.
