The acute shortage of electric power in South Asia has severely hampered regional economic growth. Cross-border electricity trade—supported by appropriate policies, institutions, and grid interconnections--can be a powerful tool for improving people’s livelihoods. This paper analyzes case studies of four regional power pools around the world to arrive at five key messages for the Bangladesh-Bhutan-India-Nepal sub-region. Such a cooperation in the sub-region could be the building block for a larger regional cooperation—and ultimately for regional economic integration.
