Offshore Wind in Vietnam webinar
June 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC+0| Free
With over 3,250 km of coastline, Vietnam has a staggering 599 GW of offshore wind technical potential, according to a study by the World Bank Group. The country has an opportunity to use its offshore wind resource to generate up to almost 30% of its electricity by 2050 using both conventional fixed-bottom offshore wind turbines and floating offshore wind technology. In order to tap into this immense offshore wind potential, the World Bank Group has recently published its ‘Offshore Wind Roadmap for Vietnam ‘, which provides analysis, insights, and evidence for policymakers and industry alike to make decisions and build a sustainable offshore wind market in Vietnam.
On 30 June 2021, the World Bank Group together with the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) will host the first webinar in the Offshore Wind Webinar Series, focusing on Offshore Wind in Vietnam to present key findings from the country’s offshore wind roadmap.
Experts from the World Bank Group and BVG Associates, the roadmap’s lead authors, will discuss challenges, opportunities, and key actions needed for building out Vietnam’s vast offshore wind potential to deliver socioeconomic benefits such as clean energy generation, increased energy security, local green jobs creation, and emissions reductions. This webinar will also offer attendees the chance to provide feedback on the roadmap’s content and findings, to inform the development of future offshore wind roadmaps.
