HCM City (VNA) – The Saigon Hi-Tech Park’s Incubation Centre (SHTP-IC) and the non-profit organisation New Energy Nexus Southeast Asia on April 10 held a seminar discussing startups in smart energy development in Vietnam.

Speaking at the event, co-leader of the Southeast Asian clean energy investment promotion organisation Evan Scandling said the effective use of renewable energy is significant to energy security, mitigating the impact of climate change, and bringing economic benefits to countries around the world. Vietnam has launched clean and smart energy models such as solar and wind power.

Huynh Thi Minh Thu from the SolarBK company said demand for solar power development is growing in Vietnam as its potential is huge. Solar power works used for high-rise buildings, highways, and traffic lights have become increasingly popular.

On the occasion, the New Energy Nexus Vietnam programme was launched, which will assist startups in clean energy and energy storage, smart grids, energy saving and management, customer experience, Internet-of-Things application, digitalisation, and blockchain in the field.

Director of the SHTP-IC Le Thanh Nguyen said the programme connects experts, firms, and startups in clean energy and technology, thus seeking out and promoting relevant projects.–VNA
