Vietnam Offshore Wind White Paper 2019
Offshore wind is distinguished from conventional renewable energy sources in many ways, and will be an important driver of the global energy transition in the coming decades. First, offshore wind is a highly scalable renewable energy technology, capable of generating large-scale volumes of low-carbon electricity at competitive cost. Second, with average load factors in excess of 40 per cent, offshore wind is far more predictable than other renewable energy sources. Third, the application of offshore wind in near-shore and deep-water sites offers flexibility in location and potential cost reductions.
Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), together with government and non-government representatives, are presenting this white paper to urge the Government of Vietnam to take the vital steps needed to upscale offshore wind power development in Vietnam
