RE resources in Vietnam

The objective of the study was to estimate the land-based wind resource potential in Vietnam using GIS analysis, taking into account wind resource quality, topography, land use limitations, protected areas, population density, infrastructure proximity etc. Based on the results of the GIS analysis, wind resource clusters characterized by above-average quality of wind resource, are analysed using the Levelised Cost of Energy (LCOE) perspective. In addition, a more detailed wind resource mapping analysis has been carried out for selected six provinces: Binh Thuan, Ninh Thuan, Khanh Hoa, Phu Yen, Binh Dinh and Quang Ngai.

 

The project was carried out within the framework of the Danish-Vietnamese cooperation between the Danish Energy Agency and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Vietnam. The funding of the project was provided by GIZ. The project is a supporting activity for the currently on-going initiative of the Danish-Vietnamese cooperation programme, the Model-Based Power Sector Scenarios for Vietnam.

 

The project was carried out from December 2016 to July 2017 in cooperation with DHI GRAS and found that Vietnam is endowed with very significant national technical potential for land-based wind power.
