Comparative Analysis of Economic Activities and Job Creation Spurred by Advent of Electrification between Distribution of Electricity Between NEA (DCS) and CREE

Previous studies have shown that community-based electrification in Nepal, compared with conventional utility-managed electrification, might better enable development of enterprises – particularly micro-enterprises which are likely to be started by women and individuals from disadvantaged social backgrounds. Winrock International is conducting comparative research to identify key differences, if any, between the two models in the resulting number, type, size, ownership and management of enterprises enabled by access to electricity.
