USD 15.2bn to USD 15.6bn of investment will be required in Vietnam’s grid as the country transitions to a goal of 47% of renewable energy capacity by 2030.
Whilst EVN and NPT has funded development to date the private sector is now seen as a key partner in the delivery of this investment programme.
Presenting findings from a UK Government technical assistance programme, a joint research team from Pioneer International Consulting and the local law firm VILAF recently hosted a workshop in Hanoi titled "Models for Enabling Private Sector Investment into Vietnam's Grid".
The workshop was attended by EVN Vice President Mr. Nguyen Tai Anh, who presented EVN’s perspectives following a recent visit to the UK and meetings with National Grid plc.
Issues assessed included Vietnam's current transmission and distribution networks, an overview of the existing legal framework for grid development, a review of international models for private sector investment in grid infrastructure, and an assessment of options suitable for Vietnam, including three “first project” frameworks for pilot schemes.
