  • The Made in Vietnam Energy Plan
The Made in Vietnam Energy Plan was presented to the Prime Minister in Hanoi on Monday 5th December by Eurocham’s Green Growth Sector Committee, it outlines a national energy plan using indigenous resources to deliver a sustainable energy future to 2030.

EVBN and Dragon Capital Group Ltd. supported the production of the Plan, with assistance from Amcham and Norcham.

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.
