Nepal is a poor country, where access to electricity is not always given. At the same time, it is quite high above the sea-level, which is perfect for hydropower. Bir Bahadur Gale developed a micro-hydropower model, which is based on community ownership. It is not only a cheap and green way to produce energy, at the same time it helps the rural villages to develop and to particpate in the economic upturn.
