Mr. Wouter Van Wersch – President and CEO of GE ASEAN said “We choose to launch the Energy Ecosystem portfolio in Vietnam because it is one of the most energy – hungry nations in the world and open to new ideas, and solutions, to produce more affordable, reliable and sustainable power.

In particular, some of the most innovative programs were showcased by GE in the “ecosystem” – many of them have been jointly developed by GE and GE’s customers across the entire energy landscape.

At the Conference, GE also introduced new ideas, case studies, best practices and proper solutions to help Vietnam energy sector grasp opportunities and overcome challenges.

Highlights of Powering Vietnam conference included panel discussions, and presentations from GE business leaders on opportunities for gas, steam, and renewable energy, and how power services partnerships, new grid technologies, and digital industrial solutions can advance Vietnam’s energy modernization plans.

Many discussions focused on new solutions to help Vietnam produce more sustainable power to meet rising demand that is predicted to grow at an average of 10.5 percent annually during 2016 – 2020, and 8.0 percent annually during 2021 –2030. Electricity consumption is projected to reach 234.6 TWh in 2020 and 506.0 TWh by 2030 - a fourfold increase by 2030 compared with consumption in 2014.

Decentralization was another important topic where speakers discussed the shift from power generation towards generation closer to the point of consumption. 

There was also strong interest in the latest lower or non-emitting CO2 energy producing technologies to help developing markets like Vietnam upgrade aging infrastructure to save costs and meet emissions standards.
