The Made in Vietnam Energy Plan

At the Vietnam Business Forum (VBF) 2016, EuroCham, together with other chambers of commerce in Vietnam, presented the first Made in Vietnam Energy Plan (MVEP 1.0) to Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc. Since the publication of MVEP 1.0, we have seen many of our expectations met, such as the installation and grid connection of 7,000 MW of solar utility energy, compensating for electricity shortages, the signs of development for  installation of “behind the meter” renewable energy, and so on. Starting from 2018, based on the first ground-breaking MVEP 1.0, EuroCham and other chambers in VBF have worked on an updated version to reflect Vietnam’s rapidly changing energy context.

We are honoured to announce the launch of the second Made in Vietnam Energy Plan (MVEP 2.0) in January 2020. MVEP 2.0 is an energy strategy that focuses on renewable energy, natural gas, energy efficiency and battery storage as well as grid improvements and expansion that will attract private sector investment. It aims at three primary goals: meeting growing energy demand; securing energy independence; and enabling consumer access to clean energy.

At the launching event of Made in Vietnam Energy Plan 2.0 in January 2020, the Prime Minister suggested to rename the plan “Made by Vietnam Energy Plan”.

Membership in VBF Power & Energy Working Group

  • The VBF Power & Energy Working Group (“VBF PEWG”), established in 2011, is a platform under the Vietnam Business Forum Consortium, serving as a policy dialogue channel between the Vietnam’s relevant government authorities and the private sector towards a sustainable energy development in Vietnam.
     
  • Representing a diverse group of energy developers, investors, users, consulting firms, and international development agencies, VBF PEWG has worked closely with the Government, particularly Ministry of Planning & Investment (MPI), Ministry of Industry & Trade (MOIT), and Central Economic Commission (CEC), to create pathways to support the achievement of transformation in the energy sector. In specific, our works are to:
    - Engage private participation to share and disseminate information & advocate interests and issues in terms of power and energy.
    - Provide researches, legal analysis, and position papers that identify policy obstacles together with practical solutions.
    In 2019, the Working Group has published the Made-in-Vietnam Energy Plan 2.0, which emphasies the private sector position to support energy security in Vietnam and brings attention to green energy possibilities to the government, businesses, and the press.
    Being a member of the VBF PEWG brings in opportunities to involve in the WG’s activities, such as commenting on relevant legal documents, developing related documentations (reports, position papers,…), participating in meetings/ conferences with the government.
    If you wish to become VBF PEWG member, please kindly fill in the registration form at the link: https://bit.ly/2A9V5bs .
    Please note that you are eligible for VBF PEWG membership if you are current member of one among the 15 Chambers under VBF umbrella, including: EuroCham and others.
