Vietnam adjusted its National Power Development Plan in March 2016 based on findings of recently adopted Vietnam Renewable Energy Development Strategy 2016-2030 with outlook until 2050 (REDS). Both legislations reflect the same targets and aim to increase renewable energy generation share in country’s energy mix, diversify energy sources with an ultimate goal to limit CO2 and GHG emissions of country’s energy sector and reflect goals included in the INDC submitted to UNFCCC in 2015.

Renewable power generation should cover 7% of total generation in 2020 and 10% in 2030 according to the Strategy.
