Approving the plan for 'electricity supply and operation of the national power system' in 2023

 - Considering proposals of the Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) on supplementing the electricity system operation plan in 2023 and according to the proposal of the Electricity Regulatory Authority, the Ministry of Industry and Trade has just approved the "plan for electricity supply and operation of the national power system in 2023”. The Vietnam Energy Magazine would like to raise the content of this Decision for the reference of our readers.

Plan for electricity supply and operation of the national power system in 2023:

1/ The total electricity generation of the power plants (at the generator terminals) and imported by the whole country in 2023 will be 284.5 billion kWh, of which 137.1 billion kWh in the dry season and 147.4 in the rainy season.

2/ Basic input parameters for planning electricity supply and power system operation in 2023 include: GDP growth rate, and the sale of electricity in 2023 are determined in Appendix 1 issued with the Decision.

3/ Actual electricity trading generation of the power plants (according to the power purchase agreement, and electricity price plan) will be determined according to relevant regulations on electricity prices and the electricity market. The electricity generation units are responsible for proactively carrying out the preparation for power generation, including the available capacity of the aggregates and garaging sufficient primary fuel sources (coal, gas, oil) for monthly power generation in 2023.

4/ The Electricity of Vietnam is fully responsible for the accuracy, reasonableness and validity of input data/parameters and the results for calculating the electricity supply and power system operation plan in 2023 to ensure compliance with the commitments in the commercial contracts/trading agreements on the concluded power purchase agreements (PPA), fuel supply, especially commercial contracts/agreements with power plant projects invested in the form of build-operate-transfer (BOT).

At the same time, EVN is fully responsible in the event of a dispute according to the committed terms, or in raising the legal and financial obligations, unfavorable to the Vietnamese side.

2/ For the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (PVN):

- Directing the direct units to strictly ensure the priority of gas supply for power generation.

- Closely coordinating with the field owners, investors of gas power plants and EVN to deploy solutions during the gas supply, prioritizing gas mobilization for electricity generation to meet electricity consumption demand, ensuring the optimal efficiency of the gas-electricity chain and national interests.

- Strengthening effective coordination with relevant units, for strictly implementing commitments in the signed fuel purchase, sale and supply contracts/agreements.

3/ For the Vietnam Coal and Mineral Industries Group (Vinacomin)and the Northeast Corporation:

- Proactively making production plans to ensure the priority of providing adequate and continuous coal, with the right quantity, quality and type for coal-fired thermal power plants according to the signed contract terms to ensure electricity generation in 2023.

- Continuing to effectively perform the tasks assigned by the Prime Minister in Directive No. 29/CT-TTg dated December 2, 2019, on strengthening the state management in the coal production and business activities and coal supply for power generation.

- Strengthening the effective coordination with relevant units for organizing the strict implementation of commitments in the signed fuel purchase and supply contract/agreement.

4/ For investors of thermal power plants:
