The Nepal Renewable Energy Programme (NREP) is a Government of Nepal programme dedicated to increasing private sector investment in distributed renewable energy (DRE) and increasing universal energy access, while facilitating a policy, planning, legal construct, and regulatory environment conducive to both enabling and sustaining progress in DRE market development and universal energy access.
The Central Renewable Energy Fund (CREF), a financial mechanism of the Alternative Energy Promotion Centre (AEPC), has recently established a Viability Gap Funding-based Sustainable Energy Challenge Fund (SECF) with funding support from UK-Aid. SECF provides financial and technical assistance to DRE projects, to ensure their technical and economic viability and sustainable operation.
In order to evaluate the full applications received for SECF support, AEPC/NREP will establish an Independent Evaluation Panel (IEP). The main objective of the IEP is to evaluate the applications in terms of technical feasibility, financial viability, innovation, appropriateness of the proposed project cost, the applicant institutions’ capacity, and financial soundness to manage the proposed project in a sustainable way.
The AEPC/CREF provides an honorarium to the IEP members based on number of proposals evaluated.
