The U.S. Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City on October 15 awarded a US$2.96 million grant to AMI AC Renewables Corporation to construct a battery energy storage system pilot project in Viet Nam.

The project will use cutting-edge American technology and equipment to demonstrate how advanced energy storage can reduce power losses and help Viet Nam integrate greater renewable energy into its power system. It will be built and integrated into a 50 MW Solar Farm operated by AMI AC Renewables in the central province of Khanh Hoa.

Marie C. Damour, Chargé d’Affaires a.i. for the U.S. Mission to Viet Nam asserted that this project will show how cutting-edge U.S. energy storage technology can advance these goals and accelerate Viet Nam’s transition to a clean energy economy for a climate-resilient future.

Meanwhile, Chief Operating Officer of AC Energy International cum Chairman of the AMI AC Renewables Board of Directors Patrice Clausse expressed delight on the opportunities that lie ahead in harnessing this enabling technology, adding that together with AMI, the AMI AC Renewables will aim to secure Viet Nam’s renewable energy sources while helping the country achieve its sustainability goals.

The project comes after a study funded by the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) to examine the feasibility of deploying advanced energy storage technologies in Viet Nam.
