The Danish Energy Agency is working with the Vietnamese Electricity and Renewable Energy Authority to map the south-east Asian country's potential for offshore wind.
Vietnam has a coastline of 3260km, with the sea east of Ho Chi Minh City considered one of the areas in south-east Asia with greatest potential for offshore wind, DEA said.
A delegation from Vietnam is currently visiting Denmark to learn about Danish competencies and solutions within offshore wind, energy planning and energy efficiency, it added. The visit is a part of a broader cooperation between authorities in Denmark and Vietnam, which from the Danish side, is administered by the Centre for Global Cooperation in the Danish Energy Agency.
On 4 November, the Vietnam Energy Outlook Report 2019 will be published presenting scenarios on how the Vietnamese energy sector can develop in a more green and cost-effective direction, DEA said.
