Meeting Future Energy Needs in the Hindu Kush Himalaya

Chapter


Abstract


  • The Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH), despite

    having huge hydropower potential of ~500 GW,

    remains energy poor and vulnerable. More than

    80% of the rural population in HKH countries, a

    large part of whom live in mountain areas, rely on

    traditional biomass fuels for cooking and about 400

    million people in HKH countries still lack basic

    access to electricity.
