Kathmandu, April 11

German Embassy in Kathmandu is organising a 16-day exhibition on renewable energy sources that have been the driving force of the economy of Germany in recent years.

The exhibition titled ‘The German Energiewende: Transforming Germany’s Energy System’ will be held on the premises of Information and Communication Technology Centre, Pulchowk Campus, Lalitpur, from April 12 to 26.

“It should also be an occasion to discuss challenges we share and appreciate the efforts of the Government of Nepal to create a conducive environment for climate friendly energy in the country,” German Embassy stated in a press release.

The interactive travelling exhibition has already toured more than 80 locations in more than 30 countries and has received an overwhelming positive response from across the world. The exhibition hopes to attract school and college students, professionals working in the renewable energy sector, policy makers and academics, as well as anyone craving for the latest development in renewable energy, according to the press release.

The exhibition is accompanied by a photo story on the theme of 60 years of friendship between Nepali and German citizens.

The inspiring portraits of volunteers and business owners are a great way to experience intercultural exchange and tell the story of close friendship, according to the release.

Germany through GIZ is supporting Alternative Energy Promotion Centre for the promotion and development of renewable energy technologies in municipalities and rural municipalities of Nepal. The energy exhibition can be helpful in generating interest and sharing innovative projects ideas suitable for Nepal among students and academics, added the release.
