Renewable Energy
RE action plans: 
The three new hydro-electricity projects, besides contributing to domestic revenues, will also enhance our installed hydroelectricity generation capacity from about 1500 MW to about 4500 MW in the 12th FYP. This would help in increasing the current firm power estimated at 300 MW to close to 900 MW, thereby, facilitating establishment of new clean green industries, FDI inflows, employment generation, economic diversification etc. in the 12th FYP.
Energy Supply and Infrastructure
Cooperation in connectivity: 
Also of significance to the future of our development will be the direction of regional cooperation, particularly in the context of trade, transit, and energy cooperation in South Asia.
