Framework Assessment – Developing Solar Energy in Vietnam

This assessment, delivered to the Renewable Energy Support Program (RESP) in Cooperation with GIZ and in Partnership with the General Directorate of Energy (GDE) of the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT), aims to analyze to what extent the application of solar energy in the power and heat sector could contribute to Green Growth and to sustainable energy strategies, and which solar market segments and applications Vietnam should specifically focus in developing its solar energy strategy.

Following this main objective, the study analyses the main energy market structures and its potential for different solar energy applications, and the related political framework conditions, as well as stakeholder needs. As a preliminary scoping study, it subsequently recommends strategic focus areas, further fields for in-depth analysis and potential future steps of action for the Vietnamese government.
