All projects honored this time are those that have been evaluated in terms of stability, efficiency, as well as contributing to environmental protection and creating jobs and generating steady source of revenue for local budget.
At the ceremony, Chairman of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) Vu Tien Loc and Chairman of the Advisory Council for Science, Education and Environment under the Central Committee Nguyen Lan Duong awarded certificates and medals to 11 projects, including Trung Nam solar and wind farm complex; Dau Tieng No.3 solar power plant; BCG-CME Long An No.2 solar power plant; Sao Mai solar power plant; Hong Phong No.4 solar power plant; Phu Lac wind power plant; Phuong Mai No.3 solar power plant; Mui Ne solar power plant; Phong Phu solar power plant; rooftop solar power system De Heus Dong Nai; and An Khe biomass power project.
Renewable energy has been developed rapidly in recent years, especially in 2019, mainly due to the impact of the government's initiatives for the sector. By the end of June, there were 89 solar power farms connected to the grid with a total capacity of 4,442MW. In addition, wind power farms, located mainly in Ninh Thuan, Binh Thuan, have a combined capacity of 4,880MW, raising the share of renewables to over 10% in the energy mix.
As planned, by 2025 around 12,500MW of solar power and 7,200MW of wind power, and about 2,000MW of rooftop power will likely be connected to the national grid.
