Nepal: Rapid Assessment Gap Analysis
PDF File Size: 886 KB | Download   
Use of traditional biomass resources, which supplies over four-fifths of the total energy needs in Nepal, contributes to deforestation, indoor air pollution and drudgery. This mainly affects women and children. It causes loss of agricultural productivity resulting in reduced fodder for livestock. All fossil fuels consumed in Nepal are imported. Consequently, Nepal is facing financial constraints in importing oil due to soaring global oil prices. Very little of Nepal's high hydropower potential has been utilized for electricity production. The electricity system has high losses. Electricity is provided in many rural areas by off-grid hydro and solar PV systems. Development of solar energy technology is favorable for most parts of Nepal. Wind is still an unharnessed energy resource in Nepal.
