Development of Academic Program on Energy System Planning and Analysis in Nepal

Center for Energy Studies (CES) at the Institute of Engineering (IOE) of Tribhuvan University has joined hands with the Institute for Energy Systems and Thermodynamics (IET) at Vienna University of Technology, with the objectives of building capacity of energy systems planning and analysis for developing sustainable energy policies in the country and creating awareness for the universal access to electricity. This project is funded by the Austrian Development Cooperation under the APPEAR programme (Austrian Partnership Programme in Higher Education and Research for Development).

Delegates from Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu, Nepal

Delegates from Nepal and the Austrian Partners will present the energy situation in NEPAL and the installed master course for "Energy System Planning and analysis" at the Tribhuvan University. The following members of this University will attend the conference.
