Brahmanda Investment Group (BIG), a company based in Nepal, is an investment involving both native Nepalese and the Nepalese diaspora in different parts of the world. It focuses on the basic infrastructure of Nepal and is strongly driven by the motto Hamro Nepal Hami Banau. We have but one life to build our country and there has to be a starting point. With the aim of battling long hours of load shedding in the country, BIG is currently involved in developing hydroelectricity in Nepal. Looking at the country's geography, it is rich in water resources and houses 2.27% of the world's waters with about 6,000 rivers stretching up to 45,000 km. Current studies show that the country's unexploited potential of generating hydropower of 83,000MW has the capacity of generating around 43,000 MW of electricity immediately. Unfortunately, the country with such massive potential has failed to meet not just its commercial and industrial demands, but basic household needs too. Statistics reveal that currently both the public and private sectors in Nepal have generated only about 750 MW of hydroelectricity. The country's economy is deteriorating and there's been no sign of poverty alleviation. During the 1990s, the liberalisation of power sector in Nepal heralded private companies to develop hydroelectricity in the country under the BOOT (Built Operate Own Transfer) model. The government of Nepal holds specific policies, acts and regulations for hydropower, which is regulated and reviewed with high importance. This is one of the sectors that allow repatriation of foreign currency for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). The Independent Power Producers in Generation, the 2014 Power Trade Agreement with India and the Free Power Trade Concept agreed in the recent SAARC summit are awaiting implementation.
