Mr. Nguyen Duc Ninh, Deputy Director of the National Electricity Regulatory Center, said that there are currently 147 traditional power plants with a capacity of 30 MW or more. For solar power plants, on April 23, 2019, there are only 4 factories; By May 17, there were 27 factories; It is expected that by the end of June 2019, there will be 88 solar power plants.
Mr. Nguyen Duc Ninh said: & nbsp; In terms of advantages, the incentive mechanism has attracted domestic and foreign investors to participate in the electricity sector, reducing the pressure on arranging capital to build power projects of the Government and the State corporations. country; thereby contributing to strengthening national electricity supply security. With proper climate characteristics, wind power solar projects are mainly concentrated in the South and South Central region, where the load proportion accounts for about 50% of the whole country, so with The introduction of renewable energy projects will partly reduce the energy shortage in the South, thereby increasing the security of electricity supply and reducing the stress in the operation of electricity systems.
Difficulties in operating solar power such as: full, overload; uncertainty of transmit power; power quality problems (harmonics); issues related to emission reduction mechanism, technical standards; operating standards …
With EVN’s efforts, it is expected that by the end of June 2019, there will be 88 solar PV power plants operating successfully. This is a record throughout the history of Vietnam’s electricity industry in terms of the number of new power plants that have energized and grided for the first time in a short time (within 3 months), contributing to ensuring supply. full power, serving the national economy.
To ensure adequate power supply for the national economy, EVN has been and will actively support solar-powered projects and put it into official operation.
