Smart Grids for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SGREEE) (Finished)



07/2017 - 06/2022

Funding Agencies

Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

German Climate Technology Initiative (DKTI)



Political Partner: Viet Nam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade

Implementing Agency: Electricity Regulatory Authority of Vietnam (ERAV)


The ‘Smart Grids for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SGREEE)’ project is supporting the Government of Viet Nam in the implementation of its Smart Grid Roadmap, which aims to promote the modernization and automation of the national power transmission and distribution system. Funded by BMZ, the project is working closely with ERAV to support experts of the Vietnamese power sector in developing a “Smart Grid”, i.e. the digitalization and flexibilization of the power supply system, which allows integration of an increasing share of renewable energies and supports greater energy efficiency.

Exemplary activities in the project’s three action areas include:


Legal and Regulatory Framework

Strategic advice on future power system development and establishment of a sector-wide stakeholder dialogue

Supporting the development of regulations with the emphasis on the grid integration of renewable energies as well as the flexibilization and digitalization of the power system with smart technologies


Capacity Development

Establishing a Knowledge Network on smart grid technologies for Vietnamese power system experts

Trainings on Smart Grid technologies, innovative power system operation and planning with high shares of renewable energies


Technology Cooperation

Promoting the application of state-of-the-art Smart Grid technologies

Intensifying applied research and development, e.g. feasibility tests for smart technology system configurations in laboratories
