In a joint statement with the wind industry, the council recommends transparent PPAs, better grids, easier approval and a trade body

Despite an acute need for new power generation and abundant wind resources, Vietnam is far from meeting its own wind power targets, the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and leading companies in the sector say, recommending several policies for the industry to take off in the South-East Asian country.

“We’re here to help Vietnam realise the many benefits from developing its wind power sector: clean, affordable power for economic development; enhanced energy security; and the creation of leading edge technology and jobs”, GWEC secretary general Steve Sawyer said as the council and industry players are gathered in Hanoi for the country’s first wind power conference.
