VOV.VN - The nation joined with the United States to explore ways in which to further step up bilateral energy co-operation during their fourth energy security dialogue in Washington D.C on July 27 and July 28.
Delegations from both sides presented key issues in bilateral energy co-operation, including clean electricity generation, electricity market development, energy saving and efficiency, energy transmission, and storage.
The two sides also spent time discussing clean energy technologies in detail, such as hydrogen, storage batteries, and nuclear energy, as well as urgent plans to accelerate the energy transition in order to achieve the target of net zero emissions by 2050.
At the dialogue, AES Corporation of the US handed a letter of intent to the Vietnamese delegation in the hope of deploying an offshore wind power project in Binh Thuan province with a total cost of US$13 billion and an expected capacity of 4,000 MW.
The implementation of this project is set to contribute to the Vietnamese side’s carbon emission reduction plan and help to achieve the target committed at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), it said.
Furthermore, the US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) announced technical assistance to the National Power Transmission Corporation of Vietnam (NPT) as it seeks to accelerate the deployment of smart grid technologies under the 2.0 Information Technology Roadmap of Vietnam Electricity (EVN).
Moreover, the Bureau of Energy Resources under the US Department of State extended an invitation to the Vietnamese delegation to visit the US side’s electricity and renewable energy markets, with this trip expected to take place at the end of this year.
