Afternoon Refreshments

Energy Storage

Rooftop Solar

Power & Electricity

Taking renewable energy to the next level with energy storage

  • Critical role of energy storage 
  • Status of energy storage in today Vietnam’s market
  • Prospects for government’s support for energy storage development and deployment
  • Case studies

Net metering policy to promote the upscaling of solar rooftop in Vietnam

  • Reducing peak load power demand through solar rooftop installations
  • Simply energy exchange transactions and facilitate the opening of renewable energy sector to SMEs who have an ability to penetrate a large proportion of the country’s population, thereby expanding the solar rooftop market size
  • Net metering mechanisms & metering instalments
Power & Electricity

Panel Discussion: What are the right investment signals and market reforms to push Vietnam’s energy storage capacity?

Energy storage technologies – which include batteries, thermal storage, pumped hydro, and more – can help integrate wind and solar on to the grid by storing energy when power demand is low, and discharging power when demand is high. Energy storage adds flexibility to the grid, allowing renewables to generate power when they would otherwise be curtailed. 

With this value, Vietnam should plan a rapid expansion of the country’s energy storage capacity. The key question is, what are the investment incentives and market reforms that will help to attract industry players?

Panel Discussion: Commercial and industrial solar: Forecasting the business opportunity in Vietnam

  • Are current FITs and incentives attractive enough?
  • Can this sector be competitive without subsidies?
  • Winning the hearts of C&I facility owners to install solar panels on their roofs
  • Streamlining net metering and grid interconnection
  • The power of aggregation of demand
