Dolma Himalayan Energy is changing the way Nepal and neighboring states tackle electricity undersupply by investing in on-grid peak-energy solutions. The Himalaya Hindu Kush is among the most electricity-deprived regions on earth, where 1 in 2 people do not have grid-access to electricity (World Bank).
Our strategy for Nepal is underpinned by the key features summarised below:
- A clear market need supported by strong economic fundamentals
-High electricity demand – projected to reach 10,000 MW by 2030
-High electricity import costs, Nepal currently imports 500 MW a year
-Widening supply gap in peak electricity as few storage-style projects planned
-Lowering costs in global battery storage prices
- A commitment to positive social and environmental impact
- Competitive advantage as a result of the Dolma Group’s presence and operating experience
Pioneering Mountain Solar to Combat Climate Change
The Himalayan region, where 1 in 2 people do not have access to grid-supplied electricity, is facing an unprecedented environmental crisis caused by short-lived climate pollutants.
Dolma Himalayan Energy (DHE) is an investment platform and developer for renewable energy and battery storage in the Himalayan region, starting in Nepal.
