Hydropower accounts for the largest share of clean energy generation in Nepal . Investments in hydropower plants are particularly interesting and profitable for institutional investors, as they offer long-term stable cashflow and a low correlation to traditional asset classes and renewable infrastructure plants.
Hydropower plants today work with fully matured technologies and, with regular maintenance, can generate electricity reliably over many decades with high value retention and at low operating costs. Largely independent of subsidies, hydropower plants also have an enormous degree of efficiency and achieve an efficiency of 85–95 percent. In addition, stored hydropower can achieve higher capture rates as energy production can be shifted: if energy prices rise, water is released; if they fall, it is retained.
We have been active in the hydropower sector since 2014 and have already supported more than 40 hydropower plants in Nepal . Our dedicated team of experts have in-depth industry knowledge, comprehensive financial know-how and an extensive proven track record. This allows us to successfully conduct a wide range of transactions in the hydropower sector. Today, we have a stable portfolio and an extensive investment pipeline, as well as an active asset management approach to generate economies of scale.
