Operational situation in July 2021 and goals and tasks in August 2021

In July 2021, the Vietnam National Electricity Group has performed well the dual task of both ensuring the prevention of the COVID-19 epidemic with extremely complicated developments, and ensuring power supply for economic development. socio-economic status of the country and people's activities.

The power production output of the whole system in July 2021 reached 23.95 billion kWh, increasing by 3.7% in comparison with the same period in 2020. As accumulated for 7 months, the output reached 151.65 billion kWh, an increase of 6.2% over the same period. In which, the mobilized rate of some main sources is as follows:

+ Hydropower reached 38.29 billion kWh, accounting for 25.3% of the total power production of the whole system.

+ Coal thermopower reached 76.86 billion kWh, accounting for 50.7% of the total power production of the whole system.

+ Gas turbines reached 17.95 billion kWh, accounting for 11.8% of the total power production of the whole system.

+ Renewable energy (wind power, solar power, biomass power) reached 17.35 billion kWh, accounting for 11.4% of the total power output of the whole system.

+ Mobilized oil thermopower is insignificant, reaching 02 million kWh.

+ Imported power reached 722 million kWh, accounting for 0.5% of the total power production of the whole system.

In the first 7 months of 2021, power produced by EVN and Power Generation Corporations (including joint-stock companies) reached 75.78 billion kWh, accounting for nearly 50% of the power production of the whole system. In which, the total output of power plants with 100% capital owned by EVN (excluding EVNGENCO3 and joint-stock companies) reached 44.74 billion kWh, accounting for 29.50%.

The commercial power output of EVN in July 2021 is estimated at 20.55 billion kWh, an increase of 5.27% compared to July 2020. The accumulated output for 7 months reached 132.30 billion kWh, increasing by7.86% over the same period in 2020.

Power transmission output in July 2021 reached 19.08 billion kWh, the transmission trend is mainly in the North - Central and Central - South directions. As accumulated 7 months of 2021, transmission power output reached 121.8 billion kWh, up 1.9% more than that of the same period last year.

About business and customer service:

- By the end of July 2021, the rate of customers paying power bills in the cashless form will reach 72.59%; the rate of power bills paid in cashless form throughout EVN reached 91.49%.

- Digital transformation in business - Customer care: Regarding online services, Power Corporations have deployed to provide level 4 online electricity services on the web and app; deploying service provision by electronic method; deploying the digitalized signing of contracts and re-signing of electricity purchase and sale contracts electronically for existing customers who do not have an electronic purchase and sale contracts, aiming to personalize customer care. Regarding the customer care App, the units are deploying the information infrastructure system; standardizing and unifying service delivery channels to customers of Power Corporations; redesigning the customer service websites, customer service App in a modern direction, suitable for electronic transactions and easy to use; pilot application of evaluating customer satisfaction score through customer service app.

- In the spirit of sharing with the customers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, EVN has proactively reported to the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Industry and Trade for permission to reduce electricity prices and reduce electricity bills for the fourth phase. According to preliminary estimates, the total amount of reduced electricity price and reduced electricity bill of this phase is about VND 2,500 billion.

Regarding construction investment: In the 7 months of 2021, 70 power grid projects have been commenced; completed energizing 71 110-500kV power grid projects, of which important grid projects have been energized in July 2021 including the 500kV line connecting Nghi Son 2 Thermal Power Plant, Muong Cha 110kV transformer station, increasing capacity of Thuy Nguyen 1 and Thuy Nguyen 2 110kV substations, Muong Lay - Dien Bien 110kV transmission line, etc.

Some tasks in August 2021

In August 2021, the average daily power consumption of the whole system is expected to be 756.4 million kWh/day, the largest load capacity is forecasted at 40,783MW.

Objectives of power system operation in August 2021:

- Exploiting power sources to optimally ensure hydropower - thermopower; mobilize hydropower according to the water inflow, ensure downstream water supply for localities.

- Power Generation Corporations shall ensure the highest availability of power units in the dry season months of 2022.

- Safe and reliable operation of the transmission grid, especially the North-South 500kV system.

Regarding construction investment: Striving to commence projects: Quang Trach I Thermal Power Plant in the third quarter of 2021, O Mon IV Thermal Power Plant in the fourth quarter of 2021, etc.

In addition, in August 2021, EVN continues to direct the Corporations/Power companies to fully prepare human resources and facilities, to strengthen the 24/24h response; proactively respond to natural disasters in the rainy and stormy season, ensure the safety of people, equipment, electrical works and ensure the safety of dams, hydropower plants, and downstream areas of reservoirs, etc.
