Opening training program on Energy system operation in increasing renewable energy context

On November 1, in Hanoi, the British Embassy in Vietnam in coordination with Vietnam Electricity organized a training program on Energy System Operation in the context of increasing renewable energy.

The program is organized within the cooperation framework between EVN and the British Embassy in Vietnam on capacity building toward a fair energy transition. The speakers of the program are experts from The Office of Gas and Electricity Markets - Ofgem, and National Grid.

Trainees participating in the program are EVN employees and its units working in the fields of power system dispatching, power system operation, electricity market, organization, legislation, etc.

The Ambassador said that the training program "Energy system operation in the context of increasing renewable energy" is one of the activities to further deepen the cooperative relationship between the UK and Vietnam in the energy sector. This is also a meaningful activity towards the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations establishment between the UK and Vietnam (1973-2023).

According to EVN Vice President Vo Quang Lam, the training program is assessed timely and useful in the context of increasing renewable energy in Vietnam's power system today.

EVN Vice President Vo Quang Lam thanked the British Ambassador to Vietnam for supporting the training program implementation for EVN employees

As of October 2023, the total installed capacity of sources in Vietnam's power system is 79,130MW, of which renewable energy (RE) including wind and solar power accounts for about 1/4 of the power system capacity. Vietnam is currently ranked in the Top 10 countries with the highest increase in renewable energy capacity in the world. This is an achievement but at the same time also brings difficulties and challenges for EVN in power system operation techniques. In addition, other areas in EVN such as organization and human resources, business, information technology, infrastructure, legality, and so on also have to quickly adjust to keep up with changes and new requirements of the power system. EVN has begun to research and complete methods, management organization, internal legal framework, and processes to effectively operate the system in the context of renewable energy increasing rapidly in a short period.

Time was also spent in the program for direct exchanges between experts from the Ofgem and EVN staff; Thereby, improving interaction and training effectiveness, and strengthening connections between electrical workers in the UK and Vietnam.
