Storage Type Hydropower Project

If you pump casually, you will pump forever. Pump hard to begin with and keep it up until you get that water flowing. Then a great deal will happen.


Water for life

Water has been the key to the civilization ever since the start of the human development. Ancient Egyptyian civilization was also known as the gift of nile. Mesopotamian civilisation and the indus valley civilization in the east were on the river side.

Water for agriculture..agriculture for food...food for life

Water for power

Power demand in worlds data

Power Situation in Nepal

Nepal rely heavily on traditional source of energy. Fuel wood = 68% Bio mass = 13% Fossil fuel = 18% Hydropower = 1% Sources of energy in Nepal

Water Power

Hydrological Status of Nepal

Total annual average run-off from the nation's 600 perennial rivers :over 200 billion cu.m Around 20,000 litres of water per person per day Average annual precipitation is approximately 1700mm. 80% in monsoon season june to september.

Hydropower potential
Nepal's storage potential is estimated at 88 billion cu.m. Theoretical power potential is approximately 83,000 MW( Dr. Hari Man Shrestha) More recent estimation:52000 MW (IOE Theseus) Economically feasible potential : 43,000 MW Power harnessed: 718MW

Hydropower wonders then and now

Hoover Dam
First great achievement was in the form of Hoover dam constructed across the Colorado river in Black canyon of Arizona Constructed between 1931 and 1936 was the largest structure to be built then with still untested construction techniques Concrete thick arch structure 726.4 ft. high 1244 ft. long 660ft. Thick at base and 45 ft. at top Storage capacity 30,500,000 acre feet Power generation 2.8 million kilowatts

Three Gorges Dam

Largest hydropower project of the world spans the Yangtze River by the town of Sandouping, located in Yiling District, Yichang, Hubei province, China Completedc in 2006 Capacity of 22500 MW


Geological factors Availability of Tenchnolgy Research Sound political and policy making

Constraints in Nepal
Geological difficulty Technological complications Young geology Low capital investments/ poor economy Political instability

Status of current powerplants in Nepal

Dificulties and Problems

Before we even initiate

Geological And Environmental

Seasonal Power Production Variations Sedimentation Transportation

Decade-long conflict between the government and Maoists Obstruction in the construction of new hydroelectric power plants No proper policy to attract private sectors Butans 20 year hydro-power master plan Failure of our tenth five year plan

If we have a look at the periodic development:

What is money?
Money is the basic need that fulfills all the other basic needs.

Money is paper, but not really.

Money is the mode of financial transactions.

Money in the project

Infrastructure Development

Transportation of goods and construction materials

Construction of engineering structures Payment Operation and Maintenance cost

Economy and Hydropower

Apart from being a source of energy, hydropower is an important asset for our economical development.
Our overall economy is considerably affected both directly and indirectly by electricity generation ,which makes the role of hydropower very significant. Economy ,its strength and stability determines the favorability to extract maximum energy from our resources and create an investment friendly environment.

Financial Problems in Hydropower

Lack of budget

Imbalance in budget prioritization

Role of broker companies


P.P.A.(Power Purchase Agreement)

Agreement done between government authority and private companies. PPA is done under the Single Buyer Model.

In SBM, private ownership in electricity generation only.

Electricity Act doesnt officially recommend such a system but it is prevalent as a situational default. With the introduction of Wholesale Competition Market, single buyer concept will be dissolved.
