PRESENTATION OF NEPAL ELECTRIFICATION MASTER PLAN

Kathmandu, 24 August 2020

 

Following a 2-year assignment funded by the Asian Development Bank, GESTO has concluded the reporting for the Distribution System Master Plan for Nepal last month. The overall objective of the project was to identify a least-cost and economically viable means to reinforce, upgrade and expand Nepal’s distribution system, including on- and off-grid options, to achieve universal access to electricity by 2023.

 The Final Report has since been presented and praised at a recent Board Meeting of the Nepal Electricity Authority (the Client), which included the presence of the Minister of Energy of Nepal himself, Honorable Barsaman Pun.

It is expected that the formal endorsement and implementation of the measures included in the Final Report shall occur soon.
