Nepal energy policy, situation & sources of renewable energy in Nepal

Nepal government is looking at the different available sources of renewable energy in Nepal to improve its current energy situation and to convert into a surplus. Renewable energy is considered to be energy which is collected from various renewable sources that replenish naturally on human timescale, like rain, wind, sunlight, waves, geothermal heat and waves. Renewable energy also offers energy in 4 major areas like electricity generation, water and air cooling/heating, rural (off-grid) and transport energy services.

History of renewable energy
Before the introduction of coal during the mid-19th century, almost all energy used by humans was renewable in nature. The oldest known use associated with renewable energy in traditional biomass form to fuel fires is said to date back to 790,000 years. However, it is only after thousands of years that biomass became the common place, around 200,000 & 400,000 years ago.
Harnessing of wind, perhaps is the next oldest usage in renewable energy to steer ships over water, dating back to 7000 years, along the Nile and the Persian Gulf. While moving into recorded history, primary source of conventional renewable energy is stated to be animal power, human labor, grain crushing windmills, wind, water power, firewood and traditional biomass.

Sources of renewable energy in Nepal
This is termed to be a rapidly developing sector in Nepal. Although the country relies mainly on hydroelectricity to meets its current energy needs, wind and solar power is being viewed as a crucial element to meet the growing energy crisis in Nepal. There are various projects by the government of Nepal to inspire local to use the renewable energy in Nepal.

Hydropower electricity in Nepal

Currently, there has been installed 1,000 MW capacity derived from 88 hydropower plants spread all over the country. Among this, 60 hydropower plants that are independent power produced owned produces 441 MW. Majority of the country’s hydro power plants are run of the river, hence causing fluctuation in electric supply, depending upon the season.
Around 113 hydropower plants are currently under construction as on March 2018, with an objective to produce 3,090MW on completion.
According to researches conducted, there is present hydro-power potentiality of 83,000 MW in this state.

Solar energy in Nepal
The citizens of Nepal are facing frequent power cuts every day. Still the power supply system’s not manage well by the Nepal Electricity Authority on progress to fix properly. A viable energy in Nepal is stated to be solar energy. Private solar panel installations can be seen all over Nepal.

People residing in places in mountain area of hilly region depend upon solar power to power their homes. I think after reading this pot you are clear about Policy, situation & sources of renewable energy in Nepal. if you need even more information about renewable energy in Nepal consult NEA or ministry of power supply Kathmandu Nepal.
