Wind Power Sector in Viet Nam

According to the National Power Development Plan (PDP VII revised, March 2016), Viet Nam aims to substantially increase the renewable energy share in its power production. For wind power, starting on a current installed capacity limited to 52 MW, the targets are set to 800 MW in 2020, and 6,000 MW in 2030. Located in the monsoon climate zone, and shaped by its 3,000 km long coastline, Viet Nam’s potential to develop wind power is large. A 2011 wind atlas estimates the potential to around 24 GW. To develop the market, however, a number of regulatory and market barriers as well as capacity needs need to be overcome.
 

 

 

 

Support to the Up-Scaling of Wind Power in Viet Nam

The Support to the Up-Scaling of Wind Power in Viet Nam project aims to address these barriers through technical assistance, in the period 2014-2018. It is implemented by the Ministry for Industry and Trade (MOIT) and its General Directorate for Energy (GDE), as well as the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). The project is commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ) under the German Climate Technology Initiative (DKTI), with a total budget of EUR 6.900.000. It consists of three Action Areas, each geared towards the development of the sector.

 

Action Area 1
 

Legal and Regulatory Frameworks

MOIT and GIZ work jointly on improving legal and regulatory frameworks to encourage and facilitate investments in wind power. Among others, partners for these activities include Electricity of Viet Nam (EVN), the Electricity Regulatory Authority of Viet Nam (ERAV), the Institute of Energy (IE), as well as provincial authorities (e.g. DOITs).

 

Example 1: Proposal for a new Feed-in Tariff

Based on existing feasibility studies for wind power projects in Viet Nam, GIZ has developed a tool to calculate a feed-in tariff that would be considered economically viable under local conditions. A proposal has subsequently been developed for the revision of the current tariff that is widely perceived as too low for a nascent market.
 

Example 2: Wind Power Investment Guidelines

To provide clear and transparent instructions for investment in the Vietnamese wind power sector to both public and private stakeholders, GIZ has developed Wind Investment Guidelines. A recommendation paper drafted jointly provides an overview of the opportunities for further improvement of the existing procedures.
 

Example 3: Levelized Cost of Electricity of Existing Wind Power Projects in Viet Nam

In May and June 2016, GIZ and MOIT worked on a study assessing in detail all capital and operation & maintenance expenditures (CAPEX and OPEX) for wind power projects in Viet Nam. We analysed the real power production of wind farms in Bac Lieu and Binh Thuan provinces and calculated with these and the CAPEX and OPEX the cost for production of a kWh of electricity. In a second step, we derived implications for the revision of the Vietnamese wind power policy. A short version will be available for publication in autumn 2016.  

 

Action Area 2


Capacity Development

Action Area 2 comprises trainings for public institutions as well as Vietnamese project developers, local banks, consulting companies, and specialised engineering firms. Trainings and courses include cash flow modelling for wind farms, financial due diligence, technical aspects of the construction of wind farms, their connection to the transmission grid, and operation & maintenance of wind farms. This action area also renders direct project development advice to wind projects currently under development.

 

Example 1: Trainings for Vietnamese Project Developers

GIZ runs more than 5 week-long trainings per year on project development, targeted at local companies active in the sector. This includes all aspects of the development cycle, from early stage development activities such as site assessments, to wind measurements as well as late-stage development aspects such as tendering for technology.

Example 2: Due Diligence Trainings for Local Banks

With more than 5 trainings per year for local commercial and public banks, GIZ seeks to increase the capacities of credit appraisal departments in analysing, assessing and granting loans to wind power projects. This includes the basics of project financing, financial modelling, as well as detailed due diligence trainings. For our training calendar, please click here

 

Example 3: Project Development Clinic

For wind power projects currently under development, GIZ has set-up an advisory platform for any question arising in the development process. If a developer is concerned with the quality of a certain document, needs assistance in interpreting a wind audit, is unsure about the next steps in his project or requires a hint to a suitable consultant for an environmental and social impact assessment, the GIZ Project Clinic stands ready to respond to all requests.

Action Area 3

 

Technology Cooperation

Activities under this action area aim to facilitate knowledge transfer between Viet Nam and Germany, and stimulate research and innovation on wind power in Viet Nam through research collaborations, student summer schools and private sector partnerships.

 

Example 1: Vietnam-Germany Joint Research Initiative

The Joint Research Initiative aims at fostering collaboration on wind power between Vietnamese researchers and their German counterparts. Their joint research is expected to be geared towards the deployment of, and investment into the wind sector in Viet Nam. Over the next two and a half years, up to 3 successful projects will be supported with a budget of EUR 50,000-100,000. Topics covered will include innovative turbine designs, environmental impacts assessment and the economic viability of wind power in Viet Nam.

 

Example 2: Wind Power Summer School

MOIT and GIZ are working closely with German and Vietnamese universities to organise a two-week Wind Power Summer School in September 2016. Up to 30 students coming from the two countries with backgrounds in engineering, economics or finance will have the opportunity to learn from experts and companies about wind technology, project development and financing, and wind farms operation and maintenance. The summer school will be rounded up by a job fair.

 

Example 3: Wind Measurement Campaign

GIZ is measuring wind speeds at 60m and 80m height at 10 sites across 8 provinces of Viet Nam, in an effort to validate and improve the accuracy of available meteorological surface data, as well as to identify potential sites for the development of projects. The data is published on the World Bank Open Energy Data Platform and has been used in several studies implemented by stakeholders of the development sector.
