Increase energy supply from Northwest wind power source

Northwest region, with the potential to provide about 7,000 MW from wind energy each year. Show source wind electricity This is being considered and added to the national electricity development planning for the period 2021 – 2030, with a vision to 2045 (power planning VIII), thereby contributing to the transformation of clean energy sources. protect the environment, as well as fulfill Vietnam’s commitment to bring net emissions to zero by 2050.

Wind measuring station in Keo Lom commune, Dien Bien Dong district, Dien Bien province, reported on the basis of research works on wind potential, showing that, all survey points have exceeded the required wind level, to deploy wind energy projects with great potential.

“Through our survey in the northwestern provinces of Vietnam, the wind level is above 6 m/s. Particularly in Dien Bien Dong district of Dien Bien province, the wind level is as high as 7 m/s. Thus, The potential of wind power in this area is huge,” said Mr. Miguel A. Rodriguez, Director of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy Company.

“According to the Energy Institute’s potential assessment, Dien Bien has the potential to develop wind power with a total capacity of 2,500 – 3,000 MW. Up to now, investors have proposed a total expected capacity of about 1,400 MW.” Mr. Vu Hong Son, Director of Dien Bien Department of Industry and Trade, said.

The survey results also show that, only in the Northwest provinces such as Son La, Lai Chau, Dien Bien…, when fully exploiting its potential, it is estimated that each year, this area will supply to the national power grid. about 20 billion kWh from wind power.

“If 7 GW of wind power is located in the Northwest, I expect that it is the calculation, the output of the planning problem, instead of us putting it there mechanically”, Assoc.Prof.Dr. Bui Xuan Hoi, Rector of the Northern Electricity College, said.

It is estimated that if 7 GW of wind power is put into operation, it will contribute to the local budget revenue of this area about 7,000 billion VND per year.

“If approved by the Government and added to the power development plan VIII, it will create a new driving force for economic growth, poverty alleviation, national defense and security assurance in Dien Bien province. “, Mr. Le Thanh Do, Chairman of the People’s Committee of Dien Bien province, commented.

“We also agreed to maximize the potential of the Northwest region. These wind power sources will really create more jobs for the locality, as well as contribute to the economic development of the Northwest provinces. “, said Mr. Hoang Tien Dung, Director of the Department of Electricity and Renewable Energy, Ministry of Industry and Trade.

According to the power planning project VIII, in terms of source structure allocation, by 2030, renewable energy sources such as wind power, solar power, and biomass power will account for about 25% of the total power capacity by 2030. 2045 reach over 42%.

The early addition of wind power in the Northwest region to the power plan VIII will not only contribute to ensuring national energy security, but will also shorten the economic and social disparities in this region in the future. future.
