Wind energy in Vietnam: targeting 6 GW of installed wind power capacity by 2030

Published onNovember 7, 2019

The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) has launched a Policy Pulse report on Vietnam, which provides qualitative analysis of the political and macroeconomic headwinds steering the wind power sector and the measures needed to unlock greater wind power potential. Vietnam has one of the fastest-growing energy consumption rates in South East Asia, with a growing population of 96.7 million people and steady economic growth. But its development roadmap, outlined by the National Power Development Plan 7 (PDP7), is currently dependent on coal power. Coal is primed to supply more than half of the country’s power by 2030, leaving Vietnam vulnerable to commercial volatility, climatic risks and political headwinds from trading and development partners.
