Vietnam – one of the fastest growing nations in Asia with more than 6% annual economic growth for the past 25 years has successfully increase its electrification rate from 54% to 98% since 1990; connecting some 55m people. It is one of the country’s priorities in providing secure and affordable supply of energy to all of the society participant and economic sectors at the same time, attract the capital required to expand infrastructure, securing the needed supply which are forecasted to hit 230TWH in 2020, 350TWH in 2025 and 515TWH in 2030.

According to the revised Power Development Plan (PDP 7), Vietnam requires total investment of $143.5 billion (excluding privately financed BOT power generation projects) for meeting its double-digital annual growth of energy in demand. The Vietnam government is broadening their strategic approaches to fully tap the huge potential of its energy sector by unlocking private investment potentials; inviting foreign technical expertise and foreign investment for participation in its energy projects. It is estimated that Vietnam requires investment of 15billion per year, which 75% is earmarked for generation and 25% for development of the transmission and distribution network.

Date: 17 – 18 April 2019
Venue: Grand Ambassador Seoul associated with Pullman, Seoul, South Korea

South Korea is an outstanding location for renewable energy exploration with its perfect solar radiation and abundant wind resource. In order to adjust the energy structure and performing the nuclear phase-out policy, South Korea focused more on renewable energy development with the launch of the President Moon’s administration. In place of Feed-in-Tariff, South Korea set up the “Renewable Portfolio Standards” in 2012 to push forward renewable energy development and hope to establish a whole mature renewable market with a completed value chain, especially in solar energy and offshore wind energy sector. Meanwhile, MOTIE published the “Renewable Energy 3020” implementation plan to increase its renewable energy use, in which it declared that it will increase renewable energy’s share of the energy mix from its current level of 7% to 20% by 2030 by providing 48.7GW in new generating capacity and 110 billion US$ will be invested in solar and wind energy. In addition, around 2.5GW offshore wind energy and 14GW solar power energy will be installed before 2020. In this booming renewable energy market, more projects and opportunities are shown for investors, EPC contractors and suppliers.

The Philippine energy sector is poised for transformation in 2019 as it meets the following major challenges to achieve national energy self-reliance and sustainability:

  • A new and transparent Philippine Conventional Energy Contracting Program (PCECP) that allows local and international exploration companies to develop and utilize indigenous petroleum resources under a service contract with the government
  • Possible revival of the geothermal industry
  • Resurrection of the nuclear interest
  • Geopolitical issues with neighboring countries with possibility of joint exploration activities
  • Global technological and political disruptions to the industry
  • and amidst all these, a strong commitment to pursue clean energy through renewables.

PowerTrends brings together key business leaders, vendors, developers, institutions and principal energy policymakers responsible for the development of the Philippine energy sector.

PowerTrends cover all technologies, trends and issues relating to the energy sector. It incorporates 3 events:

  • PowerTrends focuses on Power Generation, Transmission, Distribution and Management
