According to forecasts, the wind and solar power sources in Vietnam will increase sharply in the period of 2021-2023 to compensate for the electricity shortage due to delayed thermal power projects and by 2025, the total capacity of these sources will reach over 20,000 MW. According to the report of the National Steering Committee on Power Development Planning (PDP), a total capacity of SPPs is expected to reach 14,450 MW by 2025 and 20,050 MW by 2030. As accounting, up to now, 10,300 MW of solar power has been added to PDP, so to achieve the planned goal, about 4000 MW need to be added in 2021-2025 period and about 5,600 in 2026 – 2030 period.
