PROJECT DESCRIPTION

In South Vietnam, the introduction of solar and wind power generation of about 5 GW each has been approved, and it is expected that the introduction of renewable energy will proceed rapidly. An urgent issue is to solve the supply-demand imbalance between the north and south based on the future increase in power supply in the southern region and the power deficit in the northern region. In addition, there is a concern that the introduction of a large amount of renewable energy will cause instability in the system, so urgent examination and the implement of countermeasures is required. Specifically, an examination of the feasibility of measures such as system enhancement, stabilization systems/operational improvements, and the installation of storage batteries is envisaged.
