– Basically, the wind power sector is almost empty in Vietnam now, with only several wind farms of capacity of 30MW, 50MW…

However, the government has plan to add a total installed capacity of 2.613 MW in 2020 and 15.717 MW in 2030. Tiếp tục đọc “Wind Power Potential for Vietnam”

Gusty growth: Vietnam’s remarkable wind energy story

Vietnam is rising as Southeast Asia’s new wind hero, with power capacity soon to dwarf that of all other Asean nations and the world’s biggest offshore wind farm to be built off its windy coast, but challenges remain.

Asia Poised to Become Dominant Market for Wind Energy


Wind energy could cover more than one third of global power needs in 2050 reducing global carbon emissions by a quarter, new IRENA report finds

Beijing, China, 21 October 2019 – Asia could grow its share of installed capacity for onshore wind from 230 Gigawatt (GW) in 2018 to over 2600 GW by 2050, a new report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) finds. By that time, the region would become a global leader in wind, accounting for more than 50 per cent of all onshore and over 60 per cent of all offshore wind capacity installed globally.

Việt Nam’s energy transition faces challenges

Việt Nam News talks to Vietnamese and Danish lawmakers and experts about barriers that Việt Nam has faced in energy transition to reach sustainable development goals, experience from Denmark and the two countries’ partnership in the field.

Lê Hồng Tịnh, vice chairman of National Assembly’s Committee of Science, Technology and Environment

Việt Nam has followed the global trend of developing renewable energy. Located in the equatorial zone, Việt Nam has a natural advantage in solar power. In the context that hydropower potentials are running out and imported coal pollutes the environment, it is a priority of Việt Nam to implement wind and solar power policies.

However, if solar power develops at a too rapid speed, it will cause an imbalance in the power system. A cloud blocking the sun can interrupt the system.

European countries have their power system connected to a general European network. When the grid of one country is interrupted, they buy electricity from the general regional power system. Unlike Việt Nam, the power system is not connected to any regional network. Therefore in case of interrupted transmission, it is difficult to find alternative sources of energy.

Việt Nam has revised the Law on Electricity, Law on Economical and Efficient Use of Energy and related laws to attract and encourage the public to engage in using renewable energy.

The Vietnam Electricity has offered assistance of VNĐ1 million (US$43) for each household installing solar-powered water heaters. Now we have to adopt policies in which families can sell extra solar power on their roofs to integrate into the national grid.

We need also an electricity tax policy. The National Assembly has conducted studies to work with the Ministry of Industry and Trade to make amendments and supplements to related laws.

Professor Trần Đình Long, full member of International Academy of Electrotechnical Sciences, vice president of Việt Nam Electrical Engineering Association

Việt Nam has not mapped out an appropriate plan for national electricity structure in the long term. Việt Nam used to target a low proportion of renewable energy in the plan. After that, following the global trend, the proportion of renewable energy has been adjusted to increase.

The percentage of renewable energy accounted for in the national electricity structure needs comprehensive planning on power sources and grids.

Experience from around the world including European countries, China and India shows renewable energy policies start from feed-in tariff and preferential treatment for clean energy. Việt Nam needs to conduct insightful research to adopt a general appropriate feed-in tariff policy. This must answer questions of how electricity prices are supported, through loans or preferential import-export policies.

Dr Vũ Minh Pháp, Institute of Energy Science, Việt Nam Academy of Science and Technology

The barrier of Việt Nam is weakness in technology quality inspection. Technologies of solar and wind power from global manufacturers have entered Việt Nam at a rapid speed. However, there is no Vietnamese unit in charge of inspecting these devices to check whether the technologies are well suited to the Vietnamese environment. Another barrier is that there has been no study in Việt Nam that finds proper answers to the question of how to treat waste after solar and wind power projects reach their end of life.

Steen Gade, former member of Danish Parliament, former chairman of the Climate, Energy and Building Committee

I think Việt Nam needs to combine energy politics with climate issues. Việt Nam needs to combine economic growth with a very strong environmental and climate agenda.

Denmark has experience in involving people. It has been the centre in Denmark when we need high prices of energy, we discuss in public, in media, in organisations, among ordinary people to find out the best solution.

In Denmark, local farmers in rural areas made co-operatives where they own wind mills and they can sell wind power to the grid. That means it was an economic benefit for farmers, at the same time, it started the process of renewable energy. We combine economy and environment and we focus on renewable energy. We have developed action between people, topic discussions, media, education and politics.

Aton Beck, director of global co-operation, Danish Energy Agency

We have very good co-operation with the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade and the electricity of renewable energy authority on how to ensure more renewable energy in Việt Nam’s system. On November 4th, we will launch a new Việt Nam’s energy outlook that will look into different kinds of scenarios for the long-term transition in Việt Nam. There is definitely a huge potential for wind, solar energy and biomass in Việt Nam.

Next year, Denmark will have more than 50 per cent of our electricity consumption based on wind. We can integrate it into our system. In 2028, we will have 100 per cent of electricity consumption based on wind.

Denmark has some good experience and we would like to share with Việt Nam.

Việt Nam has very successful economic growth but it also creates challenges in the energy sector including higher energy demand, higher dependence on coal, higher emissions of greenhouse gases and higher dependence on importing energy with dramatic increase in energy import.

We have good co-operation with the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade to ensure that Việt Nam has the right framework for having international developers coming to Việt Nam to invest. That is really important that you have transparent and simple framework conditions for renewable energy developers. — VNS

Năng lượng tái tạo có thể giúp đạt mục tiêu toàn cầu về khí hậu và năng lượng đồng thời giữ được các dòng sông chảy tự nhiên

Hà Nội, ngày 13 tháng 5 năm 2019 – Trong bối cảnh hàng ngàn đập thuỷ điện đang được quy hoạch trên toàn cầu, trong đó có cả khu vực Tiểu vùng sông Mekong Mở rộng, một báo cáo mới đây của WWF và Uỷ ban Bảo vệ Thiên nhiên khẳng định năng lượng tái tạo có thể giải quyết thách thức toàn cầu về năng lượng và khí hậu mà không cần phải hy sinh những dòng sông chảy tự do cũng như những lợi ích đa dạng mà chúng mang lại cho con người và thiên nhiên.

Người mang điện gió về nông thôn

TTOChỉ học hết lớp 12 nhưng ông Lê Hữu Bá lại tìm tòi sáng chế điện gió để tạo ra nguồn năng lượng xanh, giúp cho ông cũng như người dân địa phương giải tỏa “cơn khát điện” phục vụ sinh hoạt và sản xuất nông nghiệp của hộ gia đình.

Hơn nửa tháng qua, sáng nào ông Lê Hữu Bá (ở xã Tân Hòa, huyện Châu Thành A, Hậu Giang) cũng vui vẻ bật môtơ bơm nước để tưới cây sau vườn mà không cần lo chi phí tiền điện. Bởi vì mỗi ngày cây quạt điện gió do ông tự sáng chế cứ đều đặn đón gió trời, tạo điện miễn phí với công suất 1kW/h.

An ninh năng lượng và những giải pháp tiềm năng

22:55 | 04/11/2017

Tốc độ gia tăng dân số và sự phát triển kinh tế trên thế giới dẫn đến nhu cầu năng lượng ngày càng cao.

Năng lượng – Mối quan tâm lớn

Theo thống kê của Tập đoàn dầu khí Anh quốc (BP), nhu cầu năng lượng trên thế giới tăng đều khoảng 1% năm trong 3 năm 2014-2016. Với tốc độ tiêu thụ này, đến năm 2040, nhu cầu năng lượng thế giới sẽ tăng 38%. Theo dự báo của Cơ Quan quản lý thông tin năng lượng của Mỹ (EIA), nhu cầu năng lượng thế giới có thể tăng đến 48% đến năm 2040.

Nguồn năng lượng hiện nay có được từ hai nguồn: Không tái tạo (nguồn carbon hóa thạch ví dụ như dầu, khí, than đá, năng lượng nguyên tử) và năng lượng tái tạo (năng lượng mặt trời, gió, khí sinh học, địa nhiệt, thủy điện nhỏ…). Tuy vậy nguồn năng lượng từ carbon hóa thạch có hạn, chỉ đủ để cung cấp cho chúng ta trong vòng 51 năm với tốc độ tiêu thụ năng lượng như hiện nay.
