Vietnam Wind Power 2022 is to be held on December 1-2 in Hanoi and is expected to be a crucial event to gather key stakeholders in the wind industry to facilitate Vietnam’s just transition to a greener economy.
With the continued support from various embassies, government agencies, and the industry, Vietnam Wind Power (VWP) has grown and is well-received by various key stakeholders in the wind industry.

In 2021, it saw the participation of 600+ online and physical attendees despite the challenging pandemic restrictions. This year, the event will be fully physical, where international and local speakers as well as other delegations can meet and connect face-to-face in the capital.
Given Vietnam’s commitment to net-zero by 2050 and a highly ambitious wind target in the latest draft of the Power Development Plan VIII, VWP 2022 will provide a great opportunity for the wind industry to meet, collaborate, and identify opportunities and solutions to accelerate the deployment of wind energy in Vietnam.
The conference will continue to explore key questions such as the role of wind power in global energy transition and in Vietnam’s future energy mix, an alternative mechanism to deploy onshore wind and the route to market strategy for offshore wind.

Vietnam is the fastest-growing wind energy market in Southeast Asia, with 500MW of onshore and offshore installed capacity, and an additional 4GW due to be connected by 2025. Liming Qiao, Asia director of the Global Wind Energy Council, told VIR’s Nguyen Thu how Vietnam’s feed-in tariff scheme, which has fuelled the wind industry’s development, must be urgently extended to maintain investor appetite and avoid a bust scenario.
