Micro Hydro Power User’s Network
NEF has facilitated for formation of, National Mini/Micro Hydropower Users Society Nepal (NAMHUS), a national network of Micro Hydro Power Users of Nepal, and is registered at the Government of Nepal. The network will work as an association to address common issues, challenges, and a forum to raise collective voice of MHP users. MHP Network represents the micro hydro users of all over the country, and will work for energy security, and economic benefit for far end rural communities adopting evidence-based advocacy and 14 lobbying. In one hand, the network will work for technical and managerial capacity enhancement of the MHP users (e.g. grid synchronization technology of micro hydro, synchronization policy, tariff, and easy access), and on the other hand, the network will support for promoting productive use of electricity and create more economic opportunities within their locality by the use of locally generated electricity, and will support in sustainability of micro hydro plants.
