This book shows how ADB’s 50-year partnership with the Nepal Electricity Authority has transformed the country’s energy sector and explains how attracting private sector investment would boost energy security and drive sustainable economic growth.

With Nepal’s electrification rate now over 90%, it explores the development of renewables, shows how reliable energy supply has transformed the economy, and explains the need to plug outstanding infrastructure gaps. It shows how the country that once suffered extensive power shortages now sells its surplus energy, and highlights how it can exploit its huge hydroelectric generation potential to become South Asia’s clean energy hub.
