Nepal Energy Foundation

About Nepal Energy Foundation

NEF was established with the aim of providing efforts for making the energy sector of Nepal sustainable and has been successful in starting some initiatives as envisioned. NEF have been able to start few major initiatives that are of great importance to entire energy sector, to the society, and the nation.

With the view that energy projects bring knowledge and opt for one-time implementation or implementation during the project period which would make sustainability uncertain, NEF has been advocating that sustainability can only be assured when issue holder work for themselves by themselves. With this vision, facilitation for forming two networks have been done: National Mini/Micro Hydro Power Users Society Nepal (NAMHUS), and Women Network for Energy and Environment (WoNEE). In addition to formation of MH Users Society, capacity building and institutional strengthening of few micro hydro projects have also been done. More specifically, NEF supported Khimti Rural Electric Cooperative (KREC) for Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) of Jhankre Mini-Hydro (635 kW) and Haluwakhola Mini-Hydro (400kW) with NEA, and the agreement has already been done.
