The Viet Nam Renewable Energy Summit 2018 (VRES 2018) will take place on March 26 to 28 in InterContinental Nha Trang in the south-central province of Khanh Hoa’s Nha Trang City.

VRES 2018 is organised by Neoventure Corporation, an energy advisory firm which helps international investors identify investment opportunities in the energy sector of emerging markets.

The event will be a match-making platform for key stakeholders in Viet Nam’s renewable energy sector to source partnerships in renewable sectors.

It is expected to gather some 30 local developers, including TTC Energy, KN Group, Phu Cuong, Ocean Group and Hado Group, together with international developers and investors like Tata Power, Mainstream and Blue Circle.

Government bodies and State-owned Electricity of Viet Nam together with its associated companies will also attend, including the Ministry of Planning and Investment, the National Load Dispatch Centre, Power Engineering Consulting Joint Stock Company No 3 and Thuan Binh Wind Power Joint Stock Company.

In September 2017, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Viet Nam issued a circular on the detailed mechanism to encourage the development of solar power projects in Viet Nam, which includes a final template power purchase agreement and the feed-in-tariff (FiT) rate of 9.35 US cents per kWh for solar projects.

The Vietnamese Government is currently reviewing the FiT rate of 7.8 US cents per kWh to further incentivise the development of wind power projects and push forward Viet Nam’s 800MW wind energy target by 2020.

The event will consist of conferences, workshops, exhibitions and project match-making forums. It will be a place for industrial players to share knowledge and expand business contacts.

VRES 2018 can provide topical sessions to understand market intelligence and to get connected with key local developers with approved renewable projects open for investment.
