Vietnam Electricity plans development of renewable energy in northern region




Vietnam Electricity (EVN) has proposed development measures for renewable energy in the northern region.


EVN is considering measures to "ensure power supply, especially in the northern region, including the issuance of mechanisms," a local report stated. It aims to increase power supplies for the region and ensure national security.


The agency has made such proposal to the government and relevant ministries and other concerned bodies.


It has been reported that "Under the proposal, by 2025, the region expects to have an additional 5,500 MW of renewable energy, including 4,000 MW of wind power and about 1,500 MW of solar power."


The agency is considering encouraging the development of rooftop solar power for self-supply. Besides, EVN has suggested the government to invest in offshore wind power in the northern region.


According to Vietnam Electricity, the measures can support Vietnam to implement its commitment delivered at the COP26 and achieve the goals.
