This authoritative report highlights the energy solutions of Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy and domestic Natural Gas as a low emissions, fast deployed alternative to coal plants fuelled by imported coal.
The key advantages of MVEP to Vietnam are:
- Fast Speed of Deployment of these domestic energy solutions - wind, solar, biomass and energy efficiency on heavy industry can be implemented in a year or less;
- Low Risk solution - in the plan there is no risk connected to fluctuating Asian coal prices. It delviers a predictable price of energy for consumers;
- Energy Efficiency if implemented as the Plan suggests, investment in efficiency would cancel the need for 11% of the planned growth of power generation to 2030 - a much more efficient energy market will result;
- Transfer of the Capital Investment Burden from the State to the Private Sector;
- Emissions are reduced and Vietnam’s Climate Change commitments can be met;
- Financing is available for clean energy, while the supply of finance for new coal plants is shrinking.
