Report on the potential of offshore wind and wave energy in Vietnam’s seas
Through geography lessons, we all know that Vietnam is a country located in the strong and stable Asian monsoon region, so the potential of wind energy in our country is considered to be extremely abundant. To a survey of the World Bank (World Bank), although Vietnam is a country with average wind potential compared to other countries in the world and in the region, it has an estimated total wind power potential of 513,160MW, 200 times larger than the capacity of Son La hydropower plant and more than 10 times the total forecasted capacity of Vietnam’s electricity industry by 2020.
Renewable energy has been and is being proven to be one of the most suitable measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce pollution and save fuel sources. The report on the potential of offshore wind and wave energy in Vietnam’s seas provides information on the current status of research, technology development and exploitation of offshore wind and wave energy in the world and in Vietnam.
