Ongoing Small Scale Consultancy Project for the Bhutan Electricity Authority (BEA) on RAB


The purpose of the project is to develop a guideline on determination of RAB for Hydropower Projects using the case of 720 Megawatt (MW) Mangdechhu Hydroelectric Project in Bhutan which is scheduled to be commissioned in November 2018. The guideline will help the Bhutan Electricity Authority (BEA) to establish the true and efficient RAB of the utilities regulated by the BEA and thereby determine a fair tariff.

Through a selection process a Consultant from Tetra Tech was assigned to this project. After the visit to Bhutan (in late October) draft guidelines will be prepared. The results will be published by the end of this year.
