SCENARIO OF NEPAL
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.

Mustang District is one of the favourite tourist destination of Nepal. So the demand of electricity for this region is very high. People in this area still depend upon traditional energy resources; such as firewood kerosene and other petroleum products to fulfill the energy demand except in some potential places where solar and micro hydropower in use for the lightning purposes. In this context it should be noted that Mustang is one of the high wind energy potential areas of Nepal.

Climate change is now generally accepted to be the greatest environmental threat facing the world, and keeping our planet’s temperature at sustainable levels has become one of the major concerns of policy makers. The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change projects that average temperatures around the world will increase by up to 5.8°C over the coming century. This is predicted to result in a wide range of climate shifts, including melting ice caps, flooding of low-lying land, storms, droughts and violent changes in weather patterns.

An Unconventional Route Towards Development
A wind turbine to generate electricity is wonderfully a new concept for a country hit hard by load shedding and Amrit Singh Thapa and four of his co – partners have made us proud by developing the three wooden blade HAWT machine, a first of its kind in Nepal. This machine can generate up to 800W of electricity. It can be installed anywhere without hassle and the best part is that it is inexpensive and is within reach of the layman too. These innovative and aspiring lads are all researcher of Energy Study Centre, Kathmandu Engineering College and are keen to conserve the environment and save the country from further degradation.
