In the rural areas of Nepal, the use of traditional biomass for cooking and kerosene lamps for lighting is still common. In spite of the presence of renewable-based technologies such as solar home systems (SHSs) in some of the remote areas, the desired socio-economic benefits are not yet visible. In response, the focus on providing energy access in rural Nepal has gradually been shifting towards energy supply infrastructure improvements. Thus microhydro, solar and hybrid mini-grids are now increasingly being installed in Nepal. This paper analyses rural energy transitions from traditional and conventional resources to renewable-based, interconnected mini-grids. Two cases of interconnected mini-grids, namely micro-hydro mini-grids in the Baglung district and PV-wind hybrid mini-grids in the Nawalparasi district are used to analyze ongoing rural energy transitions.
