Hanoi (VNA)
– The Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT)’s Electricity and Renewable Energy Authority and the Belgian Embassy held a seminar in Hanoi on October 24 discussing renewable energy development.

The event aimed to look into the production and storage of renewable energy, national and internal grids, and the European Union (EU)’s support for sustainable energy development in Vietnam.

Belgian Ambassador to Vietnam Paul Jansen said the event will open up cooperation opportunities for the two countries’ firms in renewable energy field in the near future, adding that the EU and Belgium are ready to share experience with Vietnam and connect businesses together.

Vice Director General of the authority Do Duc Quan said the MoIT has proposed the Prime Minister issue mechanisms to facilitate the development of wind, biogas, solar, and solid waste-fueled power.

Sales and Marketing Director of John Cockerill Group Eric Franssen said Vietnam holds potential for renewable energy development such as waste in industrial parks and biogas heat.

He said the group could assist Vietnam in biogas power production, adding that it is also able to separate hydrogen from water via electrolysis to provide energy for vehicles.

According to him, both sides could also partner in wind power production.

A representative from DEEP C Green Energy Company said there are enough radiation in the north to build solar power plants../.
