In order to reach its goal of having no emissions by 2045, Nepal is working toward energy self-sufficiency. It is noteworthy that the Asian Development Bank is supporting the 144 MW Tanahu Hydropower project, which is the second storage-type project after Kulekhani. Despite being nearly two years behind schedule due to setbacks including contractor termination, COVID-19, and new contractor selection, the Tanahu Hydropower Project (THP) is moving forward.
