Independent Power Producers’ Association, Nepal (IPPAN) was established in the year 2001 with the intention of encouraging the private sector to work in the area of hydropower in Nepal. It is a non-profit, non-government autonomous organization.
One of its main purposes is to act as a link between the private sector and government organizations involved in developing hydropower in the country so that Nepalese citizens can get the maximum benefit from the development effort.
Besides this, the organization also helps exchange technology, expertise, knowledge, financial and management information among the independent power producers in the country.
IPPAN is primarily a membership organization. The General Assembly comprises both institutional and individual members. The General Assembly elects the Board of Directors, which then formulates the plans and policies of the organization.
