Key outcomes expected in the first phase of the Macroeconomic study
The Macroeconomic modelling will cover a range of demand growth, renewable development, interconnection scenarios and other scenarios to properly assess the scenarios for economic impact of CBET. Adoption of interdisciplinary research by considering technology, economy, environment and social aspects in long-term is being deployed. Following results are anticipated:
- Long term electricity demand-supply scenarios for Nepal and India.
- Demand-supply gap on annual basis, with seasonal gaps increasing gross power transfers.
- Prioritization of transmission lines.
- Macroeconomic feedback on the economy.
The outcome of the studies will rigorously form estimates of benefits to inform the discussion by all three Task Forces of the SARI/EI and pave the path to prepare and develop regional energy markets and make them sustainable in order to foster economic growth of this region.
