Job Description

Deloitte is seeking candidates for an Electricity Sector Restructuring Specialist for Nepal Hydropower Development Project (NHDP), a five year USAID funded project. Applicants with Nepali citizenship are preferred.  

Project Description
The goals of NHDP are to expand access to modern, high quality hydropower services for the citizens of Nepal and to realize the potential for Nepal’s hydropower exports in South Asia.

In addition, the project will support the restructuring of the electricity sector to create viable, efficient national power services and promote expanded electricity trade between India and Nepal.

The expected long-term results of the NHDP Project are:

  • Improved economic growth, job creation, and quality of life.
  • Strengthened economic relationships with Nepal’s neighboring countries, and improved balance of payments due to electricity sales.

  • A lower carbon generation future for both India and Nepal
