The TA is designed to (i) expand the nationwide power supply and extend electricity to remote rural households, and (ii) enhance regionwide energy efficiency and cross-border economic cooperation.
These impacts of the TA will be achieved by preparing and strengthening comprehensive project design, feasibility assessment, financing plans, and implementation plans for three components: (i) rural electrification (8,934 households), (ii) interregional transmission links (45 km between Dhajay and Gelephu), and (iii) Dagachhu hydropower development for power export (114 MW run-of-the-river type and 19 km transmission to evacuate power supply).
