Vietnam develops renewable energy

Since 2017, the Vietnamese Government has issued a number of priority policies to develop renewable energy to boost production and attract domestic and foreign investment, heard a workshop in Hanoi on September 17.

As a result, in just two years, the proportion of renewable energy in the national electricity structure has increased rapidly to more than 9 percent with wind power and solar power being the two main sources.

These are positive changes that show the Government and people's efforts to reduce dependence on traditional forms of energy to protect the environment and promote Vietnam’s sustainable development, said Pham Ngoc Linh, Director of the Department of Science and Technology under the Party Central Commission for Popularisation and Education.

The important thing is to gradually improve the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy resources, he added.

According to Le Hai Dang, head of the strategy department from the Electricity of Vietnam (EVN), 50 percent of electricity used in Vietnam at present are generated from coal-fired plants.
