Mekong Delta attractive to renewable energy investment

The Mekong Delta has great advantages to develop the renewable energy sector, including wind, solar, biomass and gas thermal power, according to experts.

Eleven of 13 cities and provinces in the region hold great potential for solar energy development, with average solar radiation of 1.387-1.534 Kwh per year.

Coastal areas in the region have high potential to develop wind power, with wind speeds of 6.5-7m per second.

Taking advantage of its natural conditions and investment attraction policies, the region has become a destination for investors in renewable energy projects.

With long coastline and estuaries and islands also create favourable conditions for the localities to build warehouses, ports, gas pipelines and storage and regasification systems to develop gas-fired power projects./.
