Nepal: South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation Power System Expansion Project

Sovereign (Public) Project | 44219-014 Status: Active

ADB is helping Nepal increase its power supply, harness more clean energy, and eventually export the surplus to neighboring India. The project will upgrade transmission and distribution lines and substations, allowing the transfer of up to 2,000 megawatts of power to main load centers in the Kathmandu Valley. It will also build small hydropower plants and mini grid-based solar and hybrid systems.

Gender Equity and Mainstreaming Effective gender mainstreaming
Description ADB assisted the Government of Nepal in increasing capacity of national power grid and enhancing renewable energy development. The South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation Power System Expansion Project is building more than 200 kilometers of power transmission lines, as well as substations, along Kali Gandaki corridor in the Himalayas and Marsyangdi-Kathmandu route. The project is also building or upgrading more than 1,000 kilometers of power distribution lines in the east, central, and west regions of the country. To bring affordable renewable energy to remote areas, the project is building small hydroelectric power plants, as well as mini-grid based solar and solar/wind hybrid energy systems.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Nepal is facing chronic power shortages. Only 65% of the country's households have access to electricity and per capita electricity consumption is 102 kilowatt-hours per year, one of the lowest in the world. The installed capacity is 762 megawatts, well below the peak demand of 1,095 megawatts. As a result, consumers connected to the national grid experience scheduled power cuts of 12 hours per day or more during the dry season. In addition, the limited power transmission and distribution network is a bottleneck both for meeting domestic power demand and for potentially trading power with neighboring countries.
Impact Increased electricity access in Nepal and improved power exchange across the border
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Increased capacity of national grid and enhanced renewable energy development
Progress Toward Outcome Project components are under implementation and moving towards achieving the outcome.
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

1. Power transmission capacity increased

2. Power distribution network improved

3. Mini-grid-based renewable energy systems in off-grid areas increased

4. Capacity development support to NEA and AEPC provided.

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

1. Power Transmission Capacity Increased :

Transmission line contracts for Kaligandaki corridor (Dana-Kusma and Kusma-New Butwal transmission lines) and Marsyangdi-Kathmandu are ongoing along with the associated substations. Under Marsyangdi corridor, transmission line works have partially started and remaining packages are under procurement process.

2. Power distribution network improved:

Contracts for distribution system augmentation in eastern and western Nepal are ongoing. Distribution system reinforcement works is also ongoing in several districts.

3. Mini-grid-based renewable energy systems in off-grid areas increased:

3 solar/wind mini grid (SMG) with cumulative size of 90kWp completed. Additional 3 SMG of cumulative size of 245 kWp have been contracted out and works ongoing. 4 mini hydro sub projects with cumulative size of 1.4 MW have been contracted out and work ongoing. 4 number of wind met mast has been completed and 1 ongoing at Phalamkhai, Parbat.

4. Capacity development support to NEA and AEPC provided:

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects

Initial environmental examinations and an environmental assessment and review framework for future unidentified off-grid subprojects have been prepared for both on- and off-grid components following ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009) and the government's environmental regulatory framework. Potential impacts are mostly temporary and reversible, but some irreversible impacts on the natural habitat will occur because of the clearance of about 150 hectares of forested land. Available information on the habitat ranges and elevations of sensitive species indicates that critical habitat will not be directly impacted; potential impacts on natural habitat and potentially sensitive ecosystems have been identified and can be readily mitigated. Due diligence has determined that associated hydropower facilities comply with Nepal's regulatory requirements. Cumulative and induced impacts will have net positive benefits from easier access to energy and productive end uses of energy. Climate change risk screening was conducted and resulted to a medium climate change classification. Risks identified will be addressed through best practice engineering design.

The initial environmental examinations and environmental management plans (EMPs) for all components include mitigation measures, monitoring, and budgetary provisions that are adequate to address the environmental impacts of the project. The EMPs' requirements are being incorporated into bidding documents. The NEA and AEPC supervise construction contracts and EMP implementation, including preparation of semiannual monitoring reports. The EMPs will be updated as necessary during implementation. Public consultation and information disclosure requirements have been met. The environmental assessment for the project are disclosed on ADB's website.

Involuntary Resettlement

The project will require land acquisition and involuntary resettlement, which will primarily be economic displacements with limited impact from physical displacement. The transmission and distribution components will have permanent and temporary impacts. Permanent impacts are anticipated from land acquisition for the construction of new transmission substations, distribution substations, transmission towers, and distribution poles. The temporary impacts will be from the loss of trees and crops along the right-of-way. About 715 households will be affected by land acquisition and loss of crops and trees. An initial assessment shows that the project areas do not have any endangered indigenous peoples groups. The magnitude of the impacts on indigenous peoples is not significant. Impacts are limited to loss of portions of land which will be compensated at replacement cost. Where these groups are considered vulnerable, additional resettlement assistance will be provided, in addition to the compensation, and consultations will be carried out to make them aware of the project and to obtain their endorsement for land acquisition.

The off-grid component will not have any resettlement impacts for sample subprojects and no adverse impacts on indigenous peoples. The minimum private land requirements for the sample subprojects will be met through voluntary land donation. A due diligence report has been prepared for the sample subprojects. The off-grid component allows for future subprojects, which have not been identified and are subject to due diligence. Therefore, a resettlement framework and an indigenous peoples planning framework have been prepared as required by the Safeguard Policy Statement and related national policies and legislation. AEPC will monitor the implementation of the resettlement and indigenous people plan, and will submit semiannual reports to ADB.

Social safeguards measures will be achieved in line with the provisions stated in the PAM. A summary of the initial social safeguards assessment is presented in the summary poverty reduction and social strategy.

Indigenous Peoples Based on surveys, two draft combined resettlement and indigenous peoples plans have been prepared for the on-grid components, in line with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement and the government's legal framework.
