Druk Green Power Corporation Ltd

Bhutan is endowed with an enormous wealth of hydropower potential. Bhutan has a huge hydropower potential estimated at 30,000 MW out of which around 23,760 MW is techno-economically feasible. The idea of harnessing this vast natural wealth for the benefit of the country was conceived in the early 1970’s by the visionary and far-sighted late King Jigme Dorji Wangchuk and hydropower development has now taken a center stage. In this accelerated development of the hydropower sector of Bhutan, Druk Green Power Corporation Limited (DGPCL) was formed to play a key role in this sector. Druk Green was incorporated on January 1, 2008, through amalgamation of the erstwhile Chhukha, Kurichhu and Basochhu Hydropower Corporation with the vision “to promote, develop and manage renewable and sustainable manner, and to maximize wealth and revenue to the nation’’
