Platform to Collect Wind and Solar Data
Nepal is facing problems in electricity production resulting to an everyday crisis of load shedding. It has created a disturbance and has widely affected the living condition of the people. This outrages the demand for energy, either by import or by availability from the nation itself. The implementation of the country’s own indigenous material and technology in the production of alternative sources of energy is the best way to uplift the rapid growth, need and requirement fulfillment. In case of a developing country, the use of national renewable resource could be a step towards development. The renewable resources such as solar and wind power are certain to assist the country in the case of precise documentation. This initiation is set to help Alternative Energy Promotion Center (AEPC), Ministry of Environment (www.aepc.gov.np) in their venture towards the generation of power from alternative sources of energy. It ensures positive prospects for the country’s sustainable future.
This study focuses on the implementation of the renewable sources of energy such as wind and solar. The documentation of wind data in many areas of Nepal can be an important step forward for the implementation of power in the form of electricity. The feasibility and the cost of any project from production to generation and implementation level cannot be acquired without it. Therefore data collection is the first and the foremost requirement.
In recent years, continuous effort in wind data collection is done mostly by foreign expertise. There is still lack of data and weak research study creating voids tending to impede the flow. The budget is not yet categorized for wind data measurement, required efficiency and exact analysis. A database will eventually fulfill the primary need to an extent.
