Nepal has abundant hydropower potential. High gradient perennial rivers are capable of producing hydropower from few kilowatts to thousands of Megawatts. Considering the technical, environmental, financial and geographical constraints, it is desirable to focus on the development of small-scale hydropower plants. Many micro-hydro plants ranging from 1-100 kW have been installed. They are operated in the hilly and mountainous regions and the total installed capacity of these plants is around 15 MW.

Mini Grid

Currently most of these small hydropower plants are operated in isolated mode. So a logical step would be to build a cluster of small-hydro-based decentralized renewable power systems (SHDRPS) called Mini-Grid.

Mini-grid is a “network for the electrification with its own generating capacity (one or several generators) and to serve the local demand."
