      About Hydropower Development. In future, renewable hydropower will remain the most important source of electricity production in Norway. Norway has developed competence at the highest international level within environmentally-friendly development and operation of hydropower plants.   The topography of Nepal is such that the nature has provided the great head and source of discharge; both essential for hydropower generation. Talking about potential, well there are MW capacity possible here; out of which only MW is t.

      Nepal Hydropower Development Program (NHDP) With over 90% of the country’s total electricity generation capacity generated by hydropower plants, Nepal is heavily dependent on hydro resources to meet its energy demands. Hydropower plays a particularly important role in Nepal’s economic future because of the scale of its potential.

Development implies minimizing the use of exhaustible resources, or at least, ensuring that revenues obtained from them are used to create a constant flow of income across generations, and making an appropriate use of renewable resources. This applies to energy (oil and oil products in particular) but also to fish stock, wildlife forest, water, land, and air.

Nepal Electricity Authority. Hydropower or water power (from Greek: ὕδωρ, "water") is power derived from the energy of falling or fast-running water, which may be harnessed for useful purposes. Since ancient times, hydropower from many kinds of watermills has been used as a renewable energy source for irrigation and the operation of various mechanical devices, such as gristmills, sawmills, textile mills, trip hammers.

USAID’s five-year (), $ million Nepal Hydropower Development Project (NHDP), supports the Government of Nepal's efforts to expand the country’s access to modern, high-quality hydropower services and realize its potential as an energy exporter in South Asia. There is the potential to export hydropower power from Nepal to India in summer; and import thermal based power from India in winter for the benefit of both countries.

In comparison with hydropower development, Nepal’s transmission lines have been given less priority. Hence, there have been problems of power evacuation. Hydropower Development Policy Of Nepal An Overview of Its Implementation: Hari Bahadur Thapa.
