He told the Vietnamese leader that Erex and its Vietnamese partners studied biomass resources in 16 Vietnamese cities and provinces last month, and 19 projects with capacity of 1400MW would be rolled out in Vietnam by 2035.

NA Chairman Hue affirmed that Erex’s investment plan in biomass power matches Vietnam’s national strategy on green growth for 2021-2030, with a vision towards 2050, as well as the country’s commitment made at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26).

Vietnam is also working to complete the Power Development Plan VIII under which increasing the ratio of renewable energy, including biomass power, is taken into account.
