Power Summit 2019
21st to 22nd November 2019, Kathmandu, Nepal
Independent Power Producers’ Association, Nepal (IPPAN) is hosting the Power Summit 2019 in Kathmandu from November 21-22, 2019. In this context, the Power Summit 2019 has chosen the theme of “Powering the Asian Century”.
Government of Nepal has prioritized energy sector as a key driver for meeting the government’s slogan of “Prosperous Nepal – Happy Nepali”. With the declaration of the new Constitution in 2015 and successful elections for all levels of governments, Nepal now enjoys political stability, enabling the government to pursue policies conducive for energy development. The government has set a generation target of 15,000 MW in the next ten years and aims to make the country energy secure. Further, we see opportunities for regional connectivity allowing for energy trading. Aer many years of facing energy shortage, Nepal is presently well on its way to be an energy surplus nation in the coming year. Projects with over 2,500 MW capacity are under construction, and 2,900 MW capacity projects are ready for construction. Similarly, projects with about 18,000 MW capacity are under study. Further, with high capacity interconnection links with India, combined with the Government of India’s liberal policies for Cross Border Electricity Trade, regional energy trading is now a distinct possibility; energy banking is already a reality. Nepal and India are currently discussing further high capacity connectivity for bulk power trade and Bangladesh has expressed interest in purchasing power from Nepal, as well as for investing in Nepal’s hydropower.
