Exponential Rise in Vietnam’s Electricity Demand!
Electricity demand in Vietnam is increasing at an accelerated pace that it has far outstripped the supply of power to the country. To make up for the shortfall in power, which has become the country’s priority, the Vietnamese Government will be investing USD 48 billion of investment in power generation projects up to 2020.
IBC’s 4th Annual VietPower conference 2012 will provide insight into the growing new power generation project opportunities and Vietnam’s development plans to encourage investment and boost Vietnam’s power generation capacity!

Increasing Competitiveness of Vietnam’s Electricity Market
Restructuring and building the competitiveness of Vietnam’s electricity sector has become paramount.
In 2012, EVN anticipates power supply to rise 11.72 percent to 121.7 billion kWh. In 2025, the sector’s capacity will rise to 69,000MW with an electricity output of 431 billion Kwh. To meet rising demand, it is vital to have a highly competitive electricity market to attract domestic and foreign investors to Vietnam’s electricity sector.
