Vietnam Renewable Energy Development Strategy

Vietnam Renewable Energy Development Strategy - 

The Prime Minister has just approved the Vietnam Renewable Energy Development Strategy to 2030, outlook up to 2050.

According to the Renewable Energy Development Strategy, to 2020 most households will be powered and to 2030 most households will approach the modern, sustainable and reliable energy services with reasonable prices. Development and use of renewable energy sources contribute to implementing the sustainable environment and green economy development goals.

By this strategy, hydropower generation will increase from 56 TWh in 2015 to 90 TWh in 2020 and 96 TWh since 2030.

Priority to use renewable energy resources for energy and electricity purposes

The Renewable Energy Development Strategy recommends priority to use renewable energy, especially biomass, biogas, wind and solar energy sources for energy and electricity purposes.

According to this strategy the goals for using the types of renewable energy sources are as follow:

- For biomass and biogas resource: The rate of using redundancies of industrial and agricultural plants for energy (electricity) purpose increases from about 45% in 2015 to 50%, about 60% and 70% respectively in 2020, 2030 and 2050.

The rate of handling the breeding wastes for energy purpose increases from about 5% in 2015 to about 10%, 50% and nearly 100% in 2020, 2030 and 2050.

- For wind and solar energy resources: The strategy recommends priority to develop wind power resources in main land to 2030; to study wind power ability on continental shelf and offshore for developing it after 2030. Wind power generation expects to increase from about 180 GWh in 2015 to about 2.5 TWh, accounting 1% total mix generation; 16 TWh – 2.7% and 53 TWh – 5% respectively in 2020, 2030 and 2050.

Regarding the solar power development to supply electricity for the national power system and islands, border and remote areas where the electricity supply by the national grid will be impossible. The solar electricity expects to increase from about 10 GWh in 2015 to about 1.4 TWh, accounting 0.5% total mix generation; 35.4 TWh – 6% and 210 TWh – 20% respectively in 2020; 2030 and 2050.
