Press Release


Electric & Power Vietnam 2016 was closed with memorable experiences and positive feedback from our exhibitors and trade visitors . This year, we will introduce and display many technologies, equipment and energy saving solutions from 12 to 14 September 2018 at Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC). The show promises to be a professional and prestigious forum for business cooperation, production investment and updating Technology’s Innovations and dedicates to developing Vietnam’s electric power industry.

Energizing Vietnam’s Electric Power industry

The electrical engineering and power generation sector in Vietnam remains an industry with very high business prospects in light of the country’s robust industrialization process which has over the decade, fuelled a surge in demand for energy in general and electricity. Vietnam’s electricity consumption is expected to grow between 10-12 percent annually through 2020, primarily attributed to industrial and residential use – evident for all to see in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi with their expanding industrial parks, commercial developments, high life residential living and also from Danang through to Can Tho.

It is estimated that annual additional capacity of 4000MW will be required from now till 2020 requiring an estimated USD 20 billion investment in the power and electricity infrastructure by 2040.

Vietnam currently generates approximately 38 percent of her electricity using hydropower, 34% through coal fired power stations with the balance through combined cycle power stations and a small and growing percentage through more sustainable renewable energy sources which are predominantly wind and solar power generation.

As power demand increases and as the national electricity grid expands, there is  a pressing need to improve distribution efficiency through better grid management technologies (smart grid) and hardware.
