As modern industrialisation grows in Vietnam, so do its energy demands. Although leading the charge in Southeast Asia’s transition to renewables, the country is unable to keep up with steep energy needs and electricity shortages are frequent. It is imperative that the country uses clean, renewable energy to power its development, rather than relying on fossil fuel-based power which is destroying the Earth’s atmosphere with harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
The project combats the use of fossil fuels by installing a solar energy plant in the Dak Lak province, north of Ho Chi Minh City. With the help of 151,500 solar panels converting endless energy from the beating sun into sustainable electricity, the plant generates over 75,000 MWh of clean energy which is directly sent to the national grid.
This project reduces Vietnam’s reliance on carbon-intensive energy sources, displacing fossil fuels and reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions. It drives Vietnam toward growth and economic development, fulfilled by green and reliable power.
