What have we accomplished so far

  • Following the earthquake in 2015, UNDP integrated RERL with its recovery programme to rapidly assess 100 micro hydro systems and 42 solar pumping systems that were affected by the earthquake and repair the damage to 31 energy-generating systems, which directly benefited 7,500 households.
  • UNDP also helped local governments restore their damaged buildings like offices and health clinics, ensuring all temporary structures of local governments were solar-powered.
  • With the aim to promote sustainable and reliable minigrid systems, UNDP supported Alternative Energy Promotion Center (AEPC) to successfully install the Gulmi Mini Grid Project in Wami Taksar, Gulmi district. It connects two micro hydro plants: one 135 kilowatts and the other 83 kW, and provides reliable electricity to more than 2,300 households in the vicinity through a single system.
  • UNDP also helped additional 3,581 households to be connected to electricity in 2015.
