Vietnam Energy Prospect Report 2019 launched

The Vietnam Energy Prospect Report 2019 was launched on Monday by the Ministry of Industry and Trade and its Danish partners.

The report on power and energy development scenarios and policy recommendations for the long-term development of Vietnam's electricity and energy systems provides input for Vietnam's Power Planning 8 and the National Energy Development Plan.

The data in this Energy Prospect Report is greatly improved. The modeling method is advanced and through its analysis and evaluation gives us a very valuable document to support Electrical Master Plan 8 and the National Energy Master Plan, said Nguyen Tuan Anh, Head of Planning with the Electricity and Renewable Energy Department of the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The Vietnam Energy Prospect Report 2019 points out at least five major challenges to Vietnam's energy development: strong energy demand; renewable energy not fully exploited; balancing electricity as renewable energy develops; reducing greenhouse gas emissions; and combating climate change.
