Hanoi: Actively use solutions to use electricity and save efficiency


Hanoi is about to enter the summer months, the demand for electricity will inevitably increase. In order to ensure stable power supply, helping households and businesses save costs in living, production and business, Hanoi’s electricity industry is implementing synchronous solutions to use electricity. safe, effective.
Using electricity economically and efficiently is an important requirement

Mr. Le Anh Duong – Deputy General Director of Hanoi Electricity Corporation (EVNHANOI) said that economical and efficient use of electricity is an important requirement in the context of a lack of power supply, especially at peak times. summer. Therefore, the propaganda on economical use of electricity has been deployed by the Capital’s electricity industry in many forms, such as through the online customer care system, organizing competitions, on the media … Meanwhile, the electricity industry implements technical plans, such as replacing all mechanical meters with electronic meters, combining daily metering database for each customer group …

Hanoi promotes efficient use of electricity

Specifically, in 2020, Vietnam Electricity (EVN) has built a website http://sudungdien.evn.com.vn, made a list of key energy users (customers with consumption rates). on average 3 million kWh / year or more) to monitor and recommend a reasonable and effective electricity use plan. As a result, in 2020, Hanoi has saved about 430.8 million kWh of electricity, equal to 2.15% of commercial electricity output, equivalent to about 870 billion VND.

In order to effectively implement the use of electricity economically, Ms. Nguyen Thi Thu Phuong – Head of Communication Department of EVNHANOI expressed, currently, the economical use of electricity still depends on consumers’ perception. One of the popular habits of people is not to turn off the lights when leaving the room or unplug the power plug when not in use. In fact, electronic devices, home appliances still consume energy when turned off but not unplugged. “The demand for air conditioning in urban areas is very high. Just each family can save about 10% of their electricity consumption by using equipment that applies new technology (such as inverter technology). the amount of electricity saved is not small, “said Nguyen Thi Thu Phuong.

Dr. Nguyen Quan, former Minister of Science and Technology, Chairman of Vietnam Automation Association, said that about 30% of electricity consumption is for lighting, including civil and public lighting. Saving half of the electricity used for this purpose is equivalent to not having to invest in building a power plant with a capacity of about 4,000 MW.

Focus on key solutions

Promoting electricity-saving solutions not only helps households, agencies and offices reduce costs, but also contributes significantly to ensuring electricity supply. Because now, Vietnam has to import coal for electricity generation and is expected to import liquefied gas by 2023. According to the report of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, with the scenario of an average growth of the gross domestic product of 7% / year, the energy demand by 2025 is 352 billion kWh and by 2035 is 506 billion kWh of electricity; which is equivalent to about 130,000MW of power capacity by 2030. This is a huge challenge facing the energy sector in Vietnam.

Information about the plan to implement the program of economical and efficient use of energy in 2021, Mr. Le Anh Duong said that EVN HANOI is continuing to synchronously implement propaganda measures to each household and operator. main career, production facilities … associated with technical solutions of operation, inspection and supervision. “For households, the electricity industry will coordinate with local authorities, launch the movement “Households save electricity, save energy”, striving for each district to have 500 households, each district has 300 households. typical household use of electricity. Currently, we are coordinating to organize Earth Hour campaign in 2021. This is an annual event that has the meaning of propagating extensively on energy saving.“, Mr. Le Anh Duong specifically stated.

In addition, the People’s Committee of Hanoi has issued the Plan No. 58 / KH-UBND on enhancing electricity saving in Hanoi city by 2021. Accordingly, the city sets a minimum saving target of 2, 2% of total power consumption. The City People’s Committee requires offices, offices, office buildings, schools, hospitals … to save at least 5% of the total power consumption annually. For restaurants, hotels, commercial service establishments, office complexes, apartment buildings, 50% of the capacity of advertising lighting, outdoor decoration must be reduced at night peaks as required by the establishment. local electricity authority …

The City People’s Committee also suggested that households use electricity in an economical and efficient manner, such as: Turn off electrical equipment when leaving the room, cut off the power if not using electrical equipment. The city encourages units and individuals to install rooftop solar power systems, hot water heating systems from solar energy to reduce electricity consumption …

For enterprises manufacturing, construction, the city proposed to give priority to the use of electrical equipment labeled with high efficiency energy; Use off-peak power reserve systems to use during peak hours. In addition, the installation of large-scale renewable energy systems is also a solution to reduce power consumption and even resell the power supply.

In addition, the City People’s Committee will provide technical assistance to the production, manufacturing, renovation and market conversion of vehicles, equipment, machines, production lines, construction works, and mats. public lighting, transportation, energy saving in households …; strengthening capacity for economical and efficient use of energy; Communication to raise public awareness about economical and efficient use of energy.
