US fund a feasibility study and pilot project on an automated demand response (ADR) for Vietnam

US fund a feasibility study and pilot project on an automated demand response (ADR)  for Vietnam - 

On 17th September, the United States Trading and Development Agency (USTDA) and the Electricity Regulatory Authority of Vietnam (ERAV under MoIT) signed an  agreement on  a $ 1.2 million feasibility study and pilot project on an automated demand response (ADR) which will be carried out by Honeywell, a New Jersey-based supplier of smart grid technologies and services.  

The integration of the ADR solutions into Vietnam’s national grid will enable the Electricity of Vietnam Group (EVN), the sole state-run utility supplier of Vietnam, to reduce peak demand by working with its customers to either cut or shift electricity consumption during peak hours.

If fully implemented by five regional subsidiaries of EVN (EVN Power Corporations) across the country, wide-scale adoption of those technologies could save 300 MW for the grid and double power generation capacity by 2025, said Mrs. Leocadia I. Zak, director of USTDA at the press conference.
