The Project considers solar PV module as source of renewable energy and WLED (White Light Emitting Diode) for efficient use of solar energy. This project is jointly managed by Kathmandu University, Nepal and SINTEF Energy AS, Norway, and funded by Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD), represented by the Royal Norwegian Embassy at Kathmandu. The Industrial project partner for this project is Altitude Innovation Pvt. Ltd. The project aims to boost use of solar power system in Nepal by making it economically feasible and easily available to Nepalese.

Photovoltaic technology is believed to be one of the most appropriate means of electrical energy for various applications in Nepal. Most of Nepalese people reside in the rural areas with no connection to national grid and those connected in urban areas also experience frequent load shedding in these areas Solar based White Light Emitting Diode (WLED) technology will be useful because of its ruggedness, energy efficiency, long lifetime, friendliness to environment and sufficient illumination for general lighting purpose.

The project will no doubt help in reducing the current energy crisis in Nepal and also help in enlightening hundreds of houses with cheaper solar panel and efficient WLED.
