Vietnam started program for rooftop solar energy development


A program to boost the development of rooftop solar power in Vietnam was launched by the Electricity and Renewable Energy Authority of the Ministry of Industry and Trade. It is predicted that the renewable energy would account for 6.5 percent and 10.7% of Vietnam’s total electricity in 2020 and 2030, respectively. In the framework of this program, the USAID will assist Vietnam to promote clean energy development by harmonizing national strategies, laws, policies and regulations.
