Conference: Vietnam – Towards a Low Carbon Future


Why Vietnam?

Vietnam has emerged as an important energy producer in Southeast Asia, ranking in as one of the top nations in the region for oil and gas production and oil reserves. Recently, the country’s government is taking bold initiatives to boost renewable energy production, particularly wind and solar, to more than 10.7% by 2030, this includes a target of around 6000MW of wind power.

Vietnam has boosted numerous exploration activities, allowing for greater foreign investment and cooperation in the green energy sector. Moreover, the country’s rapid economic growth, industrialisation and export expansion have spurred domestic energy consumption.

Co-hosted by DIT, Vietnam Energy Association (VEA), British Business Group Vietnam (BBGV) and EIC, the conference will feature key industry experts sharing valuable insights into the opportunities available and challenges faced in Vietnam’s energy future towards a low-carbon environment.
