Vietnam Wind Power 2018

GWEC held its first ever Vietnam Wind Power conference in Hanoi on 7 June, in partnership with the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT), GIZ and the Embassy of Denmark.  The event attracted over 200 delegates, and more than 40 national and international press.

This full day conference allowed companies interested in developing the wind sector in Vietnam to meet and discuss with government officials about what can and what would need to be done for the wind industry to grow and remain sustainable.

The programme included presentations and debates on the latest policy developments, financing mechanisms, how to grow the supply chain (both on and offshore),  grid challenges etc, and included both domestic and international experiences.  There were ample opportunities for networking, including a themed post-conference reception where officials from the Mekong Delta and other provinces outlined their plans for wind development in these areas.
