Vietnam can use 100% renewable energy by 2050

According to the report, "sustainable scenarios for Vietnam's power sector - Vision 2050 published on 12/5 WWF and the Alliance for Sustainable Energy Vietnam, by 2050, renewable energy can meet 100% of Vietnam's electricity demand while significantly reducing harmful carbon emissions related to climate change.

The report analyzed the general situation of the national electricity sector in the overall context of the energy sector and introduce development scenarios that Vietnam can be selected for the development strategy to 2050. Vietnam Men's national ownership of renewable energy sources (renewable energy) can be used to generate electricity such as solar, wind, water, geothermal, biomass and ocean.

However, in the planning of national electricity development in 2011-2020 taking 2030, Vietnam plans to develop electricity based mainly on hydroelectric projects unsustainable and thermal power projects use of fossil fuels with high carbon content causing severe environmental pollution, nuclear power even with a high price and contains many risks ro.Viec increased carbon emissions from the use of coal and raw materials other fossils are the leading cause of climate change cause.

Meanwhile, renewable energy is an indispensable element for building a sustainable future for Vietnam, helping humans live in harmony with nature. On this view, Pham Cam Nhung, management Sustainable Energy Program of WWF-Vietnam, said: "Vietnam is fully capable of becoming a pioneer in developing nations clean energy sector and renewable. Solar energy can provide at least 35% while wind energy can provide at least 13% of Vietnam's electricity demand by 2050 ".

 The report also made three recommendations: regular script development, script development and sustainable energy development scenarios for sustainable energy optimization. Common development scenarios based on fossil fuels and outdated technologies, inefficient, causing emissions.

Two scenarios for sustainable energy development show that by 2050, in terms of engineering and economics, renewable energy can meet at least 81% - 100% of the national electricity demand; simultaneously reducing emissions to 80% carbon.
