Support to the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA)

This component aims at enabling NEA to develop solutions to the challenges of supply and demand management in the distribution network. On the demand side, NEA is supported in setting up a digital information system to analyze the consumption patterns of its customers, in developing innovative concepts of demand management, and on customer relations towards their purchase of energy-saving electrical appliances and their efficient use. On the electricity supply side, NEA is advised on the introduction of intelligent measurement system in the supply infrastructure (substation, supply lines, transformers) and supported in setting up a digital monitoring system to monitor and mitigate the technical losses of the utility distribution infrastructure.

The capabilities of the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) in managing power supply and demand are strengthened.


The followings are major indicators of the component:

  1. NEA has introduced a digital information system to analyse its customers’ consumption patterns.
  2. NEA has introduced a digital monitoring system to monitor the efficiency of the supply infrastructure.
  3. NEA has presented a programme with 3 awareness-raising measures (information campaigns and a range of advisory services) to reduce specific energy demand by end users.
  4. A platform with customer-specific information (households) is available for the promotion of energy-efficient products (e.g. domestic appliances).

Major Activities

The followings are the major activities of the component:

  1. Carry out load surveys on the demand side (households, trade and industry).
  2. Advise on the introduction of a smart metering system on the supply side (distribution substations, supply lines, transformers).
  3. Introduce an offline geographic information system (GIS) for part of the distribution grid, including end-user indexing, and geographical recording of the grid infrastructure.

What is
Energy Efficiency?
Energy Efficiency, is the goal of efforts to reduce the amount of energy required to provide products and services.
