Decentralized Energy Access Millennium Development Goals
Abstract:
The Government of Nepal (GoN) through the Alternative Energy Promotion Center (AEPC) of the Ministry of Environment (MoEnv) has been giving high priority to the promotion of rural and renewable energy technologies mainly micro-hydro, solar, biogas and improved cook stoves in its development plans and programs. The promotion of large-renewable energy technologies at large scale in rural Nepal was made possible by the strong and long-term commitment of the Government of Nepal, along with the support of UNDP, the World Bank, DANIDA, Norway, and other development partners. Their joint efforts have enabled Nepal to develop highly effective national energy programs, successfully scaled up to drastically increase the use of renewable energy technologies, improve livelihoods of the rural populations, protect the environment, and enhance the development of commercially viable alternative energy industries in the country.
