Vietnam is one of the fastest growing nations in Asia with more than 6 percent annual economic growth for the past 25 years has successfully increased its electrification rate from 54 percent to 98 percent since 1990.
The Vietnamese government has set an ambition that power generated from renewable sources should account for 44 percent of total generated electricity, paving the way for international developers and suppliers to enter the industry.
Vietnam has an extensive offshore oil & gas industry and the supply chain is now beefing up its ability to support the large scale build out of offshore turbines – and the industry is looking to Europe to learn and for partnering in their efforts. This creates an excellent environment for early entrance into a market that is evolving quickly.
