Short Introduction..
 

Micro hydropower plants also known as 'micro hydro', 'mh' and 'mhp' are installed in Nepal's remote hilly and mountainous areas. These are useful to provide electricity for lighting facility mainly. Agro-processing like grinding, hulling, operating radio, tv, computers and some other end uses are its benefits.

Nepalís techno-entrepreneurs have gained immense of expertise in this technology as they are in this trade for around 40 years. They have expertise to carry out all services for feasibility study, survey, design, manufacturing of turbines and other machines and equipment, installation, commissioning, and repair and maintenance required to micro hydropower plants. This technology has been successful to generate approximately 20 Mega Watt of electricity establishing 2500 mh plants of different size and capacity. Achievement in this technical expertise also have been appreciated abroad as services, materials and know how beyond the country have been extended.

Around 65 privately run firms/companies are there in this trade these days to render services to establish micro hydropower projects to generate of 5000 Kilo Watt of electricity annaully in the country.

The plants up to 1000 Kilo Watt capacity are to be known as micro hydropower as defined recently where as it was limited to 100 Kilo Watt in the past. The schemes of 5 Kilo Watt or less, now, have to be known as pico.

Nepal Micro Hydropower Development Association was established, in 1992, by eight privately run micro hydropower development firms/companies to set as an umbrella organisation of those dedicated to serve the nation with micro hydropower technology, skill and expertise. The Association is also to support formulating policies, plans and programmes to concerned agencies. Likewise, professional welfare is one of itís objectives
