India: Assam Power Sector Investment Program - Tranche 3

Sovereign (Public) Project | 47101-004 Status: Active

The proposed Lower Kopili Hydroelectric Power (LKHEP) would serve the growing demand for electricity in the state of Assam, sustain a healthy share of clean energy in the Assam grid, and assist in moderating the delivered cost of electricity for distribution companies. The project will use the hydropower potential of the Kopili River, a south bank tributary of the Brahmaputra river. LKHEP is designed to operate as a run-of-river power plant with diurnal storage with a total capacity of 120 megawatts (MW), comprising a main plant rated at 110 MW and an auxiliary plant rated at 10 MW.

Description The proposed Lower Kopili Hydroelectric Power (LKHEP) would serve the growing demand for electricity in the state of Assam, sustain a healthy share of clean energy in the Assam grid, and assist in moderating the delivered cost of electricity for distribution companies. The project will use the hydropower potential of the Kopili River, a south bank tributary of the Brahmaputra river. LKHEP is designed to operate as a run-of-river power plant with diurnal storage with a total capacity of 120 megawatts (MW), comprising a main plant rated at 110 MW and an auxiliary plant rated at 10 MW.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Assam has a plan to install additional generating capacity to fulfill the needs of the state to uplift the economy and to serve the unmet need of existing and new customers. Compared to oil, gas and coal, the three other primary energy options available to Assam to enhance its generating system, hydroelectric generation is capital intensive but results in a lower cost to end customers and is environmentally less polluting. The proposed project is a part of the state's roadmap for generation expansion. With several hydropower plants planned, Assam can maintain the share of hydropower capacity in the range of 33%, higher than the national average for hydropower capacity.
Impact The impact of the project will be increased availability of electricity in Assam.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome The outcome of the project will be increased electricity supply from clean energy in Assam.
