Trong thời gian vừa qua, Việt Nam đã nhanh chóng nổi lên là một trong những thị trường nhập khẩu khí thiên nhiên hóa lỏng (LNG) cho phát điện tiềm năng nhất ở châu Á. 

Tuy nhiên, không dễ để điện khí LNG tạo ra bước nhảy vọt mạnh mẽ như đã từng diễn ra trong lĩnh vực điện mặt trời thời gian vừa qua, theo báo cáo mới đây của Viện Kinh tế Năng lượng và phân tích tài chính (IEEFA).

HO CHI MINH CITY — Fashion brands including H&M and Nike are pressing Vietnam to move ahead with a renewable energy purchase program as companies come under increasing pressure to meet their sustainability goals, Nikkei Asia has learned.

A consortium of 29 brands sent a letter to Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc this month urging the country to introduce direct power purchase agreements (DPPA) between private buyers and sellers of renewable energy. Currently, energy users can only buy electricity through the national utility or through small-scale projects such as rooftop solar panels.

Solar power boom poses a distribution challenge

Photo by VnExpress/Quynh Tran.The increasing solar power capacity has made it difficult for national utility Vietnam Electricity (EVN) to ensure stable power distribution nationwide.

The nature of solar power capacity, which accounts for 25 percent of the total, is to produce high volumes during the day and no production in the evening. This poses difficulties for EVN in operating the national grid, the national utility has said in a report.

Proposed Feed-in-Tariff reduction could “seriously damage” growth of wind power in Vietnam

Vietnam might lose position of leading SE wind market: GWEC

Global Wind Energy Council

  • New proposed Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) extension by Vietnamese government would reduce tariffs for onshore and intertidal wind power by 17.4 per cent and 13.6 per cent respectively, one of the most dramatic reductions seen for wind power globally.
  • According to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), this FIT reduction threatens to deter investment and derail the long-term growth of wind power in Vietnam.
  • GWEC welcomes a FIT extension to compensate for permitting and COVID-19-related delays, which collectively will cause Vietnam to miss its 800 MW of wind power capacity target by 41 per cent.
  • GWEC, representing the global wind industry, recommends a minimum 6-month extension to the current FIT, followed by milder reductions to the FIT from May 2022 onwards.

Determining how many years a solar panel will last can take, well, years. Intended to function for 25 years or more, solar panels must be made to withstand the elements. In some cases, panels continue working well after their planned operational lifetime. Nowhere is this more evident than on the sunny hillside in Golden, Colorado, where the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) operates the Outdoor Test Facility (OTF).

Khi thảm kịch đại dịch Covid-19 của nhân loại trở nên tệ hơn, các hạn chế toàn cầu để ngăn chặn sự lây lan của vi rút bao gồm lệnh ở tại nhà, đóng cửa kinh doanh và lệnh cấm đi lại – có thể góp phần cho một cuộc suy thoái kinh tế tồi tệ nhất kể từ Đại suy thoái – The Great Depression tại Mỹ trước thế chiến thứ II. Virus đã gây ra tác động không thể quên cho ngành năng lượng: năng lượng sử dụng toàn cầu dự đoán sẽ giảm 6% trong trong năm 2020; ngành công nghiệp năng lượng tái tạo cũng không đứng ngoài cuộc.

The government has stopped licensing wind power plants and is drafting a new national power plan for the next decade.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade has told provinces and cities to temporarily stop accepting proposals for new plants.

Power plants with a total capacity of nearly 80 gigawatts have been licensed to be built in the next decade, including 30 GW from wind and solar power plants.

South Korean solar sector contests ‘unconstitutional’ biomass incentives

Dozens of solar companies are claiming renewable energy certificates issued for “wood-burning” biomass technology are unconstitutional as most such facilities are fueled by wood pellets co-fired with coal in older power plants. A constitutional court decision is expected within two years.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade wants to extend the incentive feed-in-tariff (FIT) period for wind power projects by a couple of years.

The current incentive FIT applies to projects commissioned before November 1, 2021, but the ministry will request Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s permission to extend it until the end of 2023, Minister Tran Tuan Anh said at a recent meeting.

The current 20-year incentive feed-in tariff, which was approved in September 2018, is 8.5 cents and 9.8 cents per kWh for onshore and offshore projects, respectively.

Solar power investors fear they may not be able to enjoy preferential FIT

27/08/2020    08:58 GMT+7 vietnamnet

Covid-19 and the slow implementation of power transmission projects may make it impossible for solar power projects to connect to the national grid by the end of the year.

Investors of solar power projects are concerned that they may fail to connect to the national grid and this be able to enjoy the preferential FIT (feed in tariff) of 7.09 cent per kwh.

Solar power investors fear they may not be able to enjoy preferential FIT
Under current regulations, the price is only applied to projects which become operational and connect to the national grid no later than December 31, 2020.
