Developing green energy and new energies in the process of industrialization and modernization to 2030, with a vision to 2045

This is the topic of a seminar hosted by the Central Economic Commission on the afternoon of November 10, within the framework of the third Industry 4.0 Summit on "Promoting industrialization and modernization of the country in the digital age”. Vietnam Electricity made a presentation at this seminar.

In the past years, energy development in Vietnam has attained important achievements, providing energy, especially basic electricity, meeting the requirements of socio-economic development with quality more and more improved; energy production and consumption have increased significantly, the structure of energy consumption has shifted towards industrialization.

Dr. Nguyen Duc Hien - Deputy Head of the Central Economic Commission, Resolution No. 55-NQ/TW dated 11 February 2020 of the Politburo on orientations of Vietnam's national energy development strategy to 2030, vision to 2045, clearly states the viewpoints and orientations: priority is given to exploitation and use of renewable energy sources, new energy and clean energy. In the context that the sector is accelerating the process of industrialization and modernization, associated with new scientific and technological achievements, Resolution No. 55 also orients the application of the results of Industrial Revolution 4.0 in the development of all fields in the energy sector, promoting digital transformation in the energy sector.

Representing for EVN at this seminar, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Tuan - Head of EVN’s Department of Telecommunications and Information Technology said that EVN has issued the Proposal on technology application of Industry 4.0 into operation, production and business since 2018. Units in the group have deployed 30 tasks including technology application projects/themes of Industrial Revolution 4.0 in all fields of power production, transmission, distribution, business. customer service and administration. Up to now, many 4.0 tasks have been basically completed, contributing to the implementation of the targets set by EVN.

With digital transformation, in 2021, EVN has issued the Master Plan for Digital Transformation in the Electricity of Vietnam to 2022, in consideration to 2025. In which, 5 digital transformation fields have been identified (production; sales and customer service; construction investment; internal administration; telecommunications and information technology) and set out 92 specific tasks assigned to implementing units.

EVN has applied the AGC system, helping to automatically monitor and control the capacity of renewable energy sources for areas with full or overloaded intra-regional grids in the provinces of Khanh Hoa, Ninh Thuan, Binh Thuan, and An Giang, which also contributes to ensuring safe and stable operation of 500kV transmission lines linking North-Central-South; transparency of mobilization mechanism among plants, ensuring fairness.

EVN has also conducted research and application of artificial intelligence (AI) in many fields. In solar power operation, the AI.SOLAR system deployed by EVN is capable of collecting data and analyzing actual results, connecting and integrating with weather data to complete forecasting data. Specifically, automatically providing users with charts over time and a comprehensive view of the daily forecast of generating capacity; automatically calculating to make predictions about solar power plant capacity, and so on.

In respect of construction investment, some units of EVN have applied AI in construction supervision. In the field of customer care, EVN has developed a chatbot, which helps to improve customer service efficiency, and so on.
