Balmorel model implementation in Vietnam

Balmorel: Power system model | May 2016 - April 2017

Ea Energy Analyses was involved in an initiative on planning of renewable energy integration in the Vietnamese electricity sector within a cooperation framework between Vietnam and the Danish Energy Agency. The objective of this assignment was to strengthen the national framework of the power sector of Vietnam, in order to increase the security of supply and implement the climate change and renewable energy policies at the least costs. This objective was met through awareness-building of the key stakeholders of the opportunities at hand for a strengthened power sector as well as their implications.

Following the activities in the Scenario-based analyses for Vietnam‘ project (Balmorel model introduction to the key decision-makers in Vietnam, as well as a pilot model development, and a training course), further development of the Balmorel model for Vietnam and continued capacity-building among the Vietnamese experts to operate the model was deemed to be value-adding. Ea Energy Analyses assisted in the continued Balmorel model development and capacity-building, as well as in the preparation of an energy outlook report based on the analyses using the model.

The assignment had the following main outputs: Full implementation of the Balmorel model for Vietnam, training of the Vietnamese sector analysts in the use of the Balmorel model, completion of scenario analyses, and preparation of an outlook report on the basis of the model analyses.
