Solar Power May Break Through the Electricity Bottleneck as Vietnam is Suffering its Worst Power Shortage


The continuously refreshing temperature records have left Vietnam in a severe power shortage since May, according to authoritative media. The prolonged high temperature exacerbates coal shortages, depleted reservoirs, and failure of old power plants. As a result, industrial parks and households are experiencing rolling blackouts and extended power outages.


Blackouts make solar power an important part of Vietnam’s electricity supply

Vietnam is regarded as an upcoming “world factory” with a well-developed domestic manufacturing industry. But the power cuts have hit Vietnam’s manufacturing industry hard, especially those industrial parks in the northern region. Manufacturers have further suffered exports due to power shortages at a time when demand from the United States and the European Union has dwindled. As a result, manufacturers urgently need to seek energy alternatives.


Aiming at promoting global carbon neutrality and alleviating domestic power shortages, solar power is becoming an important source of electricity supply. According to Vietnam’s Power Development Plan VIII (PDP 8) was approved by Vietnam’s Prime Minister, PDP 8 continues to strongly support renewable energy development and plans to develop 300MW in energy storage projects.

Meanwhile, rooftop solar is prioritized to be generated for self-consumption with a capacity of approximately 10,355 MW by 2030, producing roughly 15.5 billion kWh. The Ministry of Industry and Trade of Vietnam (MOIT) stressed that by 2030, Vietnam will install rooftop solar on half of all office buildings and residential roofs (power for self-use only). Solar power begins to underscore its importance.
