Five new solar measurement stations are to be installed across Vietnam in a bid to strengthen the nation’s renewable energy potential.
The stations will collect solar radiation data and help improve the accuracy of estimates on solar resources, which will be published online.
The information is expected to encourage and assist developers interested in building solar power stations.
The Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) and the World Bank have launched a campaign to promote the deployment of renewables.
Ousname Dione, Country Director for the World Bank in Vietnam said: “The costs of solar power generation are falling around the world. Vietnam is taking an important step in fostering an enabling environment for clean power generation that is quick to build.”
