Vietnam Renewable Energy Week 2019 was launched in Hanoi on September 17 as part of efforts to implement the Government’s policies on renewable energy development.
The Vietnam Sustainable Energy Alliance (VSEA) and the Climate Change Working Group (CCWG) kicked off the Vietnam Renewable Energy Week 2018 in Hanoi on August 21.
The Vietnam Renewable Energy Week 2018 will take place from August 21-26, aiming to seek solutions to promote the development and use of renewable energy in the country.
Vietnam’s plan to take its total number of coal-fired power plants to 31 by 2020 has raised environmental concerns.
The Government’s national power development plan that calls for a higher proportion of power generation from renewable energy by 2030, including water, wind, solar and biomass, has not met its targets or the country’s potential, according to the Vietnam Sustainable Energy Alliance (VSEA).
