    LAOENERGY 2019 MARKET UPDATE: LAOS AIMS TO BECOME A REGIONAL HUB FOR ELECTRICITY TRANSMISSION BY 2025  
       
    One of the best performing economies in ASEAN, Laos is in the midst of developing a strategic plan to become the regional network centre for electricity transmission by 2025. The country is currently setting up policy parameters and guidelines to help modernize the energy industry. Laos’ Energy and Mining Energy Administration Director Sichard Boudshakittilath recently detailed the plan during a related workshop. In order to move the strategy forward, Laos signed a tripartite electricity trading agreement with Thailand and Malaysia in 2017, in which Laos would sell 100 MW of electricity to Malaysia using Thailand’s power transmission network.
 
       
     
       
    According to the Ministry of Energy and Mines’ report, Laos so far has 61 hydropower plants that collectively generate about 37,366 kWh per year. An additional 36 hydropower plants are at various stages of construction that would add another 20,892 kWh per year to the nation’s power grid. Once these projects are completed, Laos will have about 100 hydropower plants by the end of next year.

Aiming to realise Laos’ vision, LAOENERGY 2019 – Laos’ No.1 International Power Generation, Transmission, Distribution & Electrical Engineering Exhibition is returning to host an even bigger and better edition this year. Held at the National Convention Centre, Vientiane from 20-22 June 2019, the International Exhibition will feature hundreds of companies and brands showcasing their vast range of products and services.
