  • Energy Cost and Energy Shortage in Nepal; Potential of Solar, Wind and other future energy sources Presented By: Group 3 :SSS, SB, NBD, SKL & BK
  • Energy Cost • Rising cost of energy-a reality • Main reason-Increasing demand of households and business sector • Negative impact on business • Major Energy types: – Petroleum Products – Electricity
  • Petroleum Cost in Nepal • Highly volatile prices • High fluctuations over the years • Price Rise from 2000 to 2013 – Petrol :225% – (Rs. 40/l to Rs. 130/l) – Diesel:347.82% – (Rs. 23/l to Rs.103/l) – LPG:216.13% – (Rs.465/cyl to Rs.1470/cyl)

  • Electricity Cost in Nepal • One of the most costly tariff in South Asia • Same rate for more than a decade • 20% increase in tariff on 17th August 2012
  • Energy Shortage • Current Scenario: Electricity Crisis • Nepal: Economically viability of 43000MW • Utilized: 600MW (just 1.4%) • Acute shortage of electricity (Demand>Supply)=Deficit • Managed through : Load shedding/ Rotating Blackouts (up to 16 hrs/day during dry seasons) more than 700MW • Demand rise by 9 t0 10%
  • Fiscal Year Annual Energy Demand (GWh) Annual Energy Supply (GWh) Deficit shed through rolling blackouts i.e., load shedding 2012/13 5446.285 (100%) 4218.135 (77.45%) 1228.15 (22.55%) 2011/12 5194.78 (100%) 4178.63 (80.4%) 1016.15 (19.6%) 2010/11 4833.35 (100%) 3850.87 (79.67%) 982.48 (20.33%) 2009/10 4367.13 (100%) 3076.69 (80.4%) 612.58 (19.6%) 2008/09 3859 (100%) 3130.77 (81.13%) 728.23 (18.17%) 2007/08 3490 Demand, Supply and Deficit of Electricity

  • Current Scenario: Petroleum Crisis • Same situation as Electricity • Imbalance of demand and supply • Nepal Oil Corporation: sole provider • Monthly loss of Rs.185.58 crores • Huge part of imports • In FY 2012/13, Oil Imports 19.2% of total imports • Nepal imported $1222.3 million worth of petroleum products from India alone • Consumption rise range 17% to 29% per annum
  • Causes of Energy Shortage in Nepal Causes of Electricity shortage – Slow paced implementation of transmission lines – Spillage of Electricity – Lack of maintenance of power stations – Non completion of projects on time – Delay in evacuation of energy from IPPs
  • Continued… Causes of petroleum product shortage – Over-Dependence on IOC for petroleum energy – Energy Subsidy – Mismanagement in NOC – Increasing number of vehicles – Absence of adequate necessary infrastructure
  • Impact of Energy Shortage in the business sector in Nepal • Impact on Manufacturing Sector • Impact on Service sector • Reliance on generators and inverters • Shift of objective of businesses • Impact on investment • Increment in production cost and market prices
  • Solar Definition • Energy of sunlight collected and used to provide electricity, to heat water, and to heat or cool homes, business or industry • It’s a renewable and sustainable source of energy, means that it doesn't run out, but can be maintained because the sun shines almost every day
  • Importance of Solar • Clean energy • Doesn’t affect the environment and eco- system • Versatile • can be utilized to power various things like cars, cooking, coffee roasters, electricity for homes and business, watches, etc. • Important in nature • Plants use the energy to produce the green chlorophyll that they need to survive, while humans use the sun rays to produce vitamin D in their bodies
  • Solar Potential • Acc. to Water and Energy Commission Secretariat (WECS) 1995, 78% of land area is potential • solar radiation varies from3.66kWh/day, and the sun shines for about 300 days a year • 2920 GW energy from 0.01% of total area of land
  • Contd.. Potential sectors Figure Commercial potential for grid connection 2100 MW Sunshine hours 6.8/day Solar insolation intensity 4.7 kWh/day Solar heater installed till 2005 61,000 Solar heater installed till 2009 185,000 Acc. to the report published by Alternative Energy Promotion Center (AEPC) in 2008 under Solar & Wind Energy Resource Assessment in Nepal (SWERA),
  • Subsidy • Started in 1998 • A 50% subsidy on the cost of solar dryer was announced by AEPC in 1998 • Use of solar photovoltaic is increasing rapidly in the country
  • Subsidies provided by Govt. to the households for installing SHS of 10-18 Wp and 18 above are presented in the table: Geographic Location 10-18 Wp NPR More than 18 Wp NPR Karnali and adjoining districts and very remote VDCs categorized A in other districts 7,000 10,000 Remote VDC categorized B in other districts 6,000 8,000 Accessible VDCs 5,000 6,000
  • Subsidy Criteria • Solar energy subsidy will only be available to Nepalese Citizens for specified SHS and SSHS systems installed in the rural areas not electrified by other means • SHS subsidy will be available if the area has been defined in general as a VDC or a group of adjoining VDCs within 3 hours’ walking distance and closeness has to be certified by one of the involved VDCs or DDC
  • Wind Energy Resources History • Wind Energy: agricultural farm of Rampur • Wind Turbine: Ramechhap district • First wind turbine generator: 20 kW • More wind turbines – Chisapani of Shivapuri National Park – Club Himalaya in Nagarkot
  • Wind Energy Resources Potential • Difficult to generalize wind conditions – Diverse topography – Consequent variation in meteorological conditions • Specific areas have been identified • World Bank(1977) • Department of Hydrology & Meteorology(DHM- 1983) • DANGRID(1992) • WECS + DHM + AEPC + NAST (1999-2002)
  • Wind Energy Resources Potential: • SWERA (AEPC, 2008): 3000 MW • ITDG: Five 200-watt wind turbines at Kavre, Tansen Palpa, Makawanpur, Chisapani (Karnali) & Udaypur • AEPC: 400-watt wind turbine at Nagarkot
  • Wind Energy Resources Analysis: • The country is in the early stage of establishing policy frameworks • Government’s target – Increasing the share of renewable energies in the energy supply to 10% in the next 20 years
  • Wind Energy Resources Recommendations • Enhance the country’s capacity to plan, develop and implement wind energy sector projects • Help different stakeholders improve their understanding of Nepal’s wind energy potential • Create competent and creative human capacity in this sector by creating synergy among all stakeholders
  • Other Fuel Resources Coal Resources • Four major categories: – Quaternary lignite of Kathmandu Valley – Coal from Dang (Eocene coal from Mid- Western Nepal) – Siwalik coal – Gondwana coal
  • Fossil Fuel Resources • Petroleum and natural gas resources – All the petroleum products consumed in Nepal are imported from India or overseas in the refined form for direct consumption. – Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) is the sole organization responsible for the import and distribution of petroleum products. – The NOC has storage facility for all the essential petroleum fuels, except for LPG.
  • Almost one third of the Nepal has been plotted out for oil exploration. Currently all 10 blocks have been leased out to foreign companies. Map Credit: Petroleum Exploration Promotion Project, Nepal.
  • Cover pages of the contracts between the Nepali government and the oil exploration companies Texana and Cairn. These documents remain “confidential.”
  • Fossil Fuel Resources • Biogas Resources – The estimated total technical potential of biogas plants is about 1.9 million plants of which 1,000,000 plants are thought to be economically viable. – As of December 2008/09, more than 2, 00, 000 biogas plants of varying capacities (4, 6, 8, 10, 15 and 20 m3) have been installed (BSP, 2010).
  • Fossil Fuel Resources • Improved Cook Stove Technology – There is a huge potential for biomass technologies like Improved Cooking Stoves (ICS), Beehive briquettes, Briquetting mechanism, Gasifier. – More than 331,000 ICS have been so far installed through various government and non- government organizations
  • Fossil Fuel Resources Micro and Pico-Hydropower Resources The hydro power stations for generation of mechanical and electrical energy up to a capacity of 100 kW come under micro-hydro in Nepal. The installations of such units up to 1000 kW do not require any license from the Government. Furthermore, EIA is not required up to 50 MW till 2011 under GoN’s working program to tackle current energy crisis 2009. The Government of Nepal is providing subsidies for the installation of micro-hydro plant according to the location and remoteness of the districts of Nepal.
