According to Vietnam Electricity (EVN), in the first quarter of this year, electricity mobilized from gas-fired thermal power plants and coal-fired thermal power plants must cut by 12-21 percent compared to last year because renewable energy (solar power) increased rapidly by up to 180 percent.

Government to have new policy on purchase of solar power soon

Nearly a week after the Vietnam Electricity (EVN) stopped receiving grid connection and purchasing solar power following Decision No.13/2020 signed on April 6, last year, by the Prime Minister on the mechanism to encourage the development of solar power in Vietnam, which expired after December 31, last year, investors are anxiously waiting for new regulations.

High expectations on renewable energy

Renewable energy (RE) projects from wind, sunlight, and biomass are expected to make up for the shortage of electricity supply and gradually replace thermal and hydroelectric sources of power. This is especially important in the context that thermal power plants, especially small hydroelectric power plants, are negatively affecting the environment.
