    Myanmar considers 20 new hydropower projects totalling 6.3 GW
  • Electricity - Hydro - Large-Hydro - Renewables - Projects

    The Ministry of Electricity and Energy of Myanmar has announced plans for 20 new hydropower projects with a cumulated capacity of 6,270 MW. The locations and timelines of the projects were not specified, though the development and construction process is expected to take 10 to 15 years.

    Myanmar aims to raise its power generation by 13%/year under its National Electricity Master Plan; this would represent a slowdown, compared to the average 16%/year growth posted over the past five years.

    Six hydropower projects with a combined capacity of 1,622 MW are already under construction, namely 1,051 Shweli-3 (expected in 2020-2021), 200 MW Upper Yeywa (2019-2020), 30 MW Upper Baluchaung (2019-2020), 111 MW Thahtay (2020-2021), 51 MW Upper Kyaingtaung (Upper Kengtawng, 2019-2020) and 100 MW Central Paunglaung (2021-2022). In addition, Myanmar plans to build a 1,700 MW gas-fired power project and two solar projects (220 MW in Minbu, in the Magway region, by 2020, and a 300 MW plant in Wandwin and Nabuai, in the Mandalay region).

    Indonesia plans to amend its energy policy to attract investments
  • Policy

    The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of Indonesia is considering overhauling its energy policy, in an attempt to attract as much as US$200bn of investments over the next decade and to reverse the decline in its oil production. The proposed amendments, which have to be approved by the President, will offer explorers various financial incentives, such as easier cost recovery or tax-free import of drilling equipment and technology.

    Indonesia is offering 14 unexplored (mainly offshore) oil and gas blocks and expects to attract new investments to raise domestic oil and gas production. Between 2010 and 2015, crude oil production fell by 17% (-3.6%/year), while gas production fell by 14% (-3%/year), forcing the country to resort to energy imports (+18% for crude oil, i.e. +3.3%/year). Indonesia should continue to import oil for at least 10 years.

    Massive investments will be required to develop the much-delayed Masela gas project estimated at US$16bn and the East Natuna block (48 Tcf or 1,355 bcm of reserves) estimated at US$30-40bn.

    Global wind capacity expected to rise to 800 GW by late 2021
  • Electricity - Renewables - Wind - Capacities - Forecasts - Supply

    According to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), more than 54 GW of new wind capacities were installed in 2016, raising global capacities to 487 GW in 2016. Capacity additions are expected to continue at the same pace (over 12%) in 2017 and more than 59 GW could be installed during the year. The growth rate should slow down until 2021, from 11% in 2018 (+61 GW) to 10.4% in 2021 (+75 GW), when the global installed wind capacity should reach 817 GW, i.e. 330 GW more than in 2016.

    Global installations should be pulled by the Asian market, which should add more than 153 GW between 2016 and 2021, to reach 357 GW; this would represent 44% of the global capacity in 2021. Asia would be followed by Europe (+73 GW to 235 GW by 2021), North America (+61 GW to 159 GW) and Latin America (+25 GW to 40 GW).

    Seven renewable power projects (562 MW) move ahead in the Philippines
  • Electricity - Renewables - Policy - Projects - Tender

    The Department of Energy of the Philippines has allowed seven renewable power projects - three wind projects, three solar projects and a 30 MW battery system totalling 562 MW - to proceed undertaking grid impact studies (GIS). GIS are necessary to determine if the future plant generation can be absorbed by the power grid.

    The seven projects include three wind parks developed by Currimao Solar Energy Corp, namely the 150 MW Talisay wind power project in Camarines Norte, the 140 MW Talim wind power project in Rizal and the 80 MW Calatagan wind power project in Batangas. Two 70 MW solar projects are developed in San Manuel (Pangasinan) by Pilipinas Newton Energy and Pilipinas Einstein Energy, while the 22 MW Capas solar power plant is developed by C-Solar Power in Tarlac. Finally, Silay Global Energy Solutions is proposing a 30 MW battery energy storage in Negros Occidental.

    So far 22 power projects have been cleared for conducting GIS.

    The Duyen Hai III-2 coal-fired turbine has been commissioned (Vietnam)
  • Electricity - Thermal - Capacities - Projects - Supply

    The Duyen Hai Thermal Power Company announced the second turbine of the Duyen Hai III power plant (Duyen Hai III-2) in the Duyen Hai town (TraVinh Province, Vietnam) has officially entered commercial operations. The first turbine, Duyen Hai III-1, has been put onstream in march 2017.

    Duyen Hai III has an installed capacity of 1,245 MW and is the third phase of the Duyen Hai coal-fired power complex (4,260 MW). The complex includes Duyen Hai I (2 turbines), Duyen Hai II (two turbines) and Duyen Hai III (two turbines). It is made of six subcritical coal turbines with a capacity of approximately 600 MW each.

    Duyen Hai III will also include the Duyen Hai III-3 660 MW supercritical coal turbine and its commissioning is expected for 2018.

    Vietnam introduces feed-in-tariffs for utility scale PV projects
  • Electricity - PV - Renewables - Solar - Feed-in tariffs - Net metering - Policy

    The Vietnamese authorities have announced the introduction of a 20-year feed-in-tariff scheme for PV projects which will be valid from June 2017 till June 2019 and it will amount VND2.086/kWh (US$9.35c), excluding VAT. It will be fluctuating along with the VND/US$ exchange rate and will only apply to projects will a module efficiency higher than 15%. Solar power producers will be also exempted from taxes on solar imported good.

    All the power generated from PV projects will be purchased by the Vietnam Electricity Corporation (EVN) and the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade will issue PPAs valid for 20 years. The PPAs can be either extended or renewed by EVN or the electricity seller.

    The Vietnamese government also released a net metering scheme in order to support the use of residential PV across the country. The related selling and buying prices for rooftop grid connected solar system will be managed by the Vietnam Ministry of Trade and Industry.

    The China-Myanmar oil pipeline has started operations
  • Oil - Projects - Supply - Trade

    China and Myanmar announced they have reached a deal on the 770 km-long crude oil pipeline between both countries. Although the pipeline was expected to start operations in 2014, it has been delayed since then. It has been put into operations and the first crude oil tanker began the offloading process at Myanmar's Made Island oil port.

    The pipeline was developed by a joint venture of Chinese oil group CNPC (50.9%) and Myanmar's state-owned Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE, 49.1%), and has a transport capacity of 22 Mt/year (240 bbl/d). The construction costs amounted US$1.5bn.

    Sumitomo starts to build the Tanjung Jati B power plant (Indonesia)
  • Coal - Coal/Lignite - Projects

    Sumitomo Corporation, Kansai Electric Power and PT United Tractors have started the construction of their Tanjung Jati B coal-fired power plant expansion project in Central Jawa in Indonesia. Upon completion, the new facility will supply power to the Indonesian power utility company PT PLN within the frame of a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA). This build, operate and transfer (BOT) project is expected to be completed by 2021.

    The project involves the addition of two new ultra supercritical (USC) coal-fired units (Unit 5 and Unit 6) with an expected installed capacity of 1,000 MW each. They will be set up alongside the existing 2,640 MW Tanjung Bati B coal-fired plant in Java, which already includes 4 units.

    The plant is currently supplying 11% of the electricity demand in the Java-Bali grid network. Indonesia's power demand is strongly increasing and the country is planning to increase its installed generation capacity by 35,000 MW in 2019.
