Deloitte Consulting is the implementing partner for the USAID Urja Nepal Project (Urja Nepal) based in Kathmandu. The purpose of Urja Nepal is to create a financially viable electricity sector that provides affordable, reliable, and secure power and enables the entry of private investment into the Nepali market. This is a five-year program and that concludes in late 2025 and is based in Kathmandu.
The purpose of Urja Nepal Project is to assist the Government of Nepal through its electricity sector administrative bodies, the Ministry of Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation, Department of Electricity Development, Nepal Electricity Authority, Electricity Regulatory Commission, Office of Investment Board of Nepal, and the Alternative Energy Promotion Center to create a financially viable electricity sector. The project spans four primary work streams: (i) improving the legal and regulatory frameworks, (ii) improving the performance of electric utilities, (iii) expanding engagement with the private sector, and (iv) increasing cross-border electricity trade (CBET).
Cross-border electricity trade is essential to the economic viability of many of Nepal’s planned and potential generation investments. Recent analyses demonstrate that well-structured and regulated cross-border electricity trade, especially with India and Bangladesh, could spur increased economic opportunities for all concerned while enhancing energy access. The key areas of focus for the Objective 4 Lead are to direct the key activities for: 1) technical systems, regulatory regimes, and power agreements needed to enable CBET and 2) transparent agreements between cross-border buyers and sellers completed.
