Is Vietnam the next offshore wind energy hotspot in South East Asia?

We are just over two weeks away from the second edition of GWEC’s Vietnam Wind Power 2019 which will take place in Hanoi from 11-12 June, in partnership with GIZ, the Danish Embassy Hanoi and the Embassy of Ireland.

During this two-day event, GWEC is organising its first closed-door Offshore Roundtable in Vietnam, hoping to start some early conversations to facilitate the development of this emerging offshore industry. This half-day roundtable will be a key platform to enable interactions amongst government authorities, offshore industry stakeholders, international and local finance institutions, and is open to GWEC members and any company with strong interest in offshore. Urgent issues such as offshore planning and permitting process, long-term investment, offshore costs and development of local infrastructures will also be addressed.

Vietnam – the next offshore wind hotspot
in South East Asia!
In September 2018, the government of Vietnam issued the “Decision 39”, which officially introduced an offshore wind tariff of VND 2,223/kWh (US cents 9.8 per kWh) as well as an increase of the onshore tariff. The FiTs have been in effect since 1 November 2018 and will be valid until 2021, making Vietnam one of the most interesting markets to watch for offshore wind in South East Asia.
What topics will be discussed in this Offshore Roundtable?
With participants are representatives from Vietnam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Electricity of Vietnam, Department of Industry and Trade of  Binh Thuan, Soc Trang, Bac Lieu, and many more.
