Re: FW: Hydrocratic dreams

May 22, 2011
Dear colleague
I have a vision as to how should Nepal’s water resources be exploited in the interest of Nepal and her people and ideas to implement the vision. But data collection is something that takes quite a lot of time, energy and resources beyond my means.

Private sector cannot be depended upon entirely for arranging energy for industrialization. You are right. However, it can very well complement if appropriate policies are formulated based upon a vision that will serve Nepal’s national interest. In eight decades from 1911 Nepal had built 238 MW. But in two decades from 1992 405 MW was added to the system of which 166.8 MW was added by the private sector.
With best regards,

Ratna Sansarju,
Thanks for your response. I was asking you because I thought you had all the necessary data.

I have my own reason for asking that because some of the energy needs can be easily fulfilled by private sector whereas demand for industrialization etc. cannot be fulfilled by them as seen with our reliance on private developers.

Anyway, if you feel it is not needed then I have nothing more to say.
