Vietnam to ‘significantly transform power mix’

Vietnam is “poised to significantly transform its electrical power generation mix over the next two decades” according to the US Energy Information Administration.

The EIA has examined Vietnam’s power sector and concluded that a radical transformation will take place as the country modernizes its economy to become a more industrialized nation.

“To accommodate greater industrial expansion and to support energy security goals, Vietnam is significantly increasing its total electricity generating capacity,” said the EIA. “As part of its capacity expansion, Vietnam plans to add substantial coal-fired capacity and also plans to build the first nuclear reactors in Southeast Asia and the first offshore wind farm in Asia.”
