Press Release


After six successful editions, Electric & Power Vietnam 2018 returns for its 7th edition as the leading power generation, transmission, distribution and renewable energy exhibition in Vietnam. The exhibition happens at the Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC) from 12 – 14 September 2018, and this year Electric and Power Vietnam co-locates with Renewable Energy Vietnam 2018 to become the largest energy event in Vietnam.

Balancing industry growth expectations with sustainable resource management

In Asia, Vietnam currently retains its position as the country with the most consistent GDP growth over a decade with a high industrialization rate as international manufacturers continue to move regional production into Vietnam. With energy cost being one of the lowest in the region, coupled with improving infrastructure and a competitive workforce – this industrialization process together with a corresponding improvement to quality of life and middle income growth of the Vietnamese population will drive power consumption growth in the years to come. The country is expected to increase power consumption by between 10-12% per annum up till 2020 offering many business opportunities in this sector in equipment and technology supplies for ongoing power generation projects, gas-fired power generation and renewable power, investment in IPP projects and in the transmission and distribution projects supporting EVN and her partners.

The need to reduce the country’s carbon footprint and public pressure to move away from more polluting sources into cleaner power options adds an additional business spectrum to the already buoyant industry. Renewable energy from the Solar and Wind sectors have seen support from both the Government and private sectors with positive legislation developments, and together with cleaner fossil fuel generation through new technologically advanced power stations currently being built, offers vast opportunities in Vietnam’s energy business.
