Vietnam is a country in the mainland of Southeast Asia with Hanoi in the North as its capital and Ho Chi Minh City in the South as its largest city. The country is a socialist republic. Vietnam is in the midst of a power sector transition, moving from a monopolized energy market to a more decentralised system. With this transition, the government hopes to invest more in renewables, in order to provide energy security and meet the rising power demand, as an eight percent annual rise in electricity demand until 2025 is predicted. Vietnam has an electrification rate of about 99%, which is higher than in most of its neighbouring countries.

In December 2022, Vietnam and the International Partners Group (IPG) - led by the European Union and the United Kingdom and including the United States, Japan, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy and Norway - announced the third ever JETP. The JETP is a commitment from the IPG to mobilise an initial USD 15.5 bn from public and private finance over the next three to five years, to support Vietnam in achieving its net zero 2050 target, as set out in its National Strategy on Climate Change to 2050. Of the total investment, half will be contributed by the IPG countries. The remaining USD 7.75 bn will consist of private finance, contingent on the mobilisation of the public sector finance, and will be facilitated by the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ).

The very first testing of Virtual Power Plant (VPP) should be shortly organised with appropriate scale and amount of time in Viet Nam, so power system and market operators, as well as the Electricity Regulatory Authority of Vietnam (ERAV) have a basis for considering and issuing legal and technical regulations. The VPP can be then put into operation to support the integration of renewable energy resources into the country’s power grid.
