Power Sector Delevopment – Leading Concern of Vietnam’s Government

Electric power plays a critical role in our society on all levels. It advances the nation’s industrial competitiveness and improves the general quality of living. It is an industry sector that contributes to the progress and prosperity of the nation. Over the past few years, Vietnam has needed to grow its power supply significantly in support of an expanding industrial economy – one of the fastest growing in Asia and in the world. Vietnam’s electricity demand has grown at a rapid pace, surpassing the GDP growth rate over the same period. According to Vietnam’s General Department of Energy, electricity demand is expected to increase by 10-12 percent annually in the near future. Electricity output in 2015 is 194-210 billion kWh rate and is anticipated to rise to 330-362 billion kWh in 2020, and 695-834 billion kWh in 20301.

To satisfy national demands for power and energy security, Vietnam has to improve the grid transmission capacity, power quality and supply capacity. The total net investment of the power sector from 2016 - 2020 is 305.331 billion, of which Vietnam Electricity (EVN) will be investing 255.822 billion with private sector contributing 49.809 billion2. The government has also intensified the implementation of many investment projects in thermal power – new coal fired power plants, gas fired and combined cycle plants, and which may also include the construction of the first nuclear power plant in Southeast Asia and the first offshore wind power complex in Asia.

Implementation of new, cleaner technologies remain critical to Vietnam’s power industry. Experience these at Electric and Power Vietnam 2016
