​In order to effectively complement its activities on renewable energy and energy efficiency market development, the MOIT/GIZ Energy Support Programme envisages a holistic approach towards a flexible and responsive, yet sustainable power system that secures and effectively satisfies the energy demand of the Vietnamese economy and population. Therefore, GIZ is currently preparing a new project that focuses on the introduction and development of Smart Grid solutions in Viet Nam such as advanced metering infrastructure, demand side management, training on scenario techniques, critical grid simulation, smart factory/home approaches, etc. The project is intended to not only help to improve the efficiency, reliability, sustainability of electricity services, but to also support the integration of renewable energy generation into the existing power grid.​
