"Nepal's hydropower development challenge outback"

Nepal's potential hydropower has been said 80,000 MW. This is India's current power equivalent to 57 percent of facilities. A major focus of the post-Kyoto is the India's development of nuclear and the hydropower development in India's north front, including Bhutan and Nepal. These power, to what extent, can suppress the development of coal-fired. For humans, it is the last challenge.

Nepal Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda', after the first visit to India, returned home on Thursday. He said to the Indian official. India and Nepal shall develop 10,000 MW of hydropower in Nepal for 10 future years, by private companies. Potential of 80,000 MW are there, but the development of 1,000 MW per year for 10 years may be difficult works for both countries.

However, the difficult of political situation in Nepal and diplomatic relations between India and Nepal have been overcome, Prachanda said that in mind. This is to help the world out of high significance climate change issue. The Japanese government is going cooperating in the development of hydropower projects in India's north front. North front of India and Nepal have exactly the same line. The Japanese government used positively to help Nepal from poverty, even in the bad security in the past.

To develop hydropower in Nepal, there are many of the walls. Today's articles touched the construction of transmission lines and access problem.

The idea of transmission line construction of 220KV,4 circuits, between two countries is not working. In the Kosi river upstream, dam construction needs the long access road. The article says today, in India, 1KW hydropower development can be done with an average of 1,105 dollars, but in Nepal 2,652 dollars really needed.

In addition, the construction of dams needs reservoirs to some extent. The influx of sediment from the Himalayas may be a difficult problem. The break in a glacial lake is also a problem. In reality, Bhutan has flood damages from them. The last challenge of humankind to Nepalese hydropower needs many talented engineers in the world.
