Energy Leaders Panel: Looking forward: Powering growth in Vietnam’s energy sector

The Vietnam power market is undergoing major restructuring, gearing towards a competitive wholesale and retail market, and increasing its installed capacity to more than 135GW by 2030. The revised Power Development Plan unveiled in March 2016, places stronger emphasis on energy security, energy efficiency, renewable energy development and power market liberalisation. This panel seeks to hear the visions of energy leaders in Vietnam and around the region on:
  • The current opportunities currently existing in Vietnam’s energy market
  • Contemporary issues in the energy market and greatest challenges Vietnam needs to overcome
  • Ensuring energy security and safeguarding capacity
  • Can solar and wind grow against a backdrop of low coal and oil prices, and what are the realistic prospects for displacing thermal and hydro power generation capacity?
  • How new technologies will shape planning decisions and regulatory behaviour going forward
  • Inspirations from other developed or developing countries
  • Policies, technologies and business models Vietnam needs to adopt in order to move ahead
