Following the successful first edition of Vietnam Wind Power conference in June 2018, which attracted nearly 200 international and local delegates, and featured 30 industry and government speakers, the Global Wind Energy Council will be holding its second edition of Vietnam Wind Power on 11-12 June 2019 in Hanoi, in partnership with GIZ and the Danish Embassy Hanoi.
Vietnam’s establishment of the Feed-in-Tariff in August 2018 has created renewed momentum for the country’s wind energy market and attracted a rush of development projects. There is already 187 MW of installed wind capacity in the country, and the Vietnamese government has set a target for wind development at 800 MW by 2020, 2,000 MW by 2025 and at 6,000 MW by 2030.
However, there are still a number of regulatory challenges to be addressed in order for project developers to be able create PPAs that are bankable from the point of view of international project finance, while the long term potential and system impact of renewables has yet to be fully recognised in long term planning.
Below is a snapshot of what’s on offer:
On 11 June, we’ll be holding a workshop on “Scaling up Project Financing for the Vietnam Wind Sector”. The workshop is specifically targeted at international and local finance institutions, development banks and government officials, and will address the burning issues facing the financing of wind projects.
Open to GWEC’s top level members and sponsors, this roundtable meetingwill focus on issues that our industry would like to bring to key government stakeholders such as the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT), Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI), and the utility EVN.
Following our Welcome Reception on the evening of 11 June – open to all workshop and conference delegates – our full-day conferenceon 12 June will feature a range of plenary and parallel sessions including regulatory, market, policy, and technology updates, as well as other pressing issues relating to the development of a sustainable wind and renewables industry.
Experts from the international and national wind industry, financial institutions, high level representatives from government and other competent authorities from Vietnam, will set the scene for a discussion on what needs to be achieved to expedite the further development of the wind sector.
