Working Paper: Exploring different models of electricity distribution system management.

The Performance of Community-Based Versus Utility Model-Based Electricity Distribution Systems in rural Nepal

This paper provides sight of early results from research in Nepal looking at two different management models for rural electricity distribution systems. The authors summarise learning to date on the general performance of the two models in practice based on comparative studies across 4 districts. The research will eventually include an assessment of the impact of these two different approaches on the establishment and growth of economic enterprises.
