Dr. Ta Dinh Thi, Deputy Director of the NA’s Committee for Science, Expertise and Atmosphere mentioned Vietnam boasts enormous potential for offshore wind energy growth, particularly south-central coastal localities similar to Binh Thuan, Ninh Thuan, Khanh Hoa, Phu Yen and Binh Dinh.
He pressured that to understand web zero emissions by 2050, Vietnam must speed up the event of renewable power, enhance power effectivity and concentrate on power conversion with an applicable roadmap, whereas making certain goals of environmental safety and response to local weather change.
Growing renewable power is a significant coverage of the Occasion, Nationwide Meeting and Authorities of Vietnam, through which offshore wind energy is taken into account as one of many breakthrough options to advertise power transformation and guarantee nationwide power safety, he mentioned.
That is carefully associated to marine spatial planning, particularly figuring out potential water areas and affordable zoning for offshore wind energy growth, he added.

For areas being deliberate for growing offshore wind energy, in-depth research are required, with the intention to make particular suggestions, Thi famous.
The outcomes of the workshop will assist the NA acquire extra data and information, particularly worldwide expertise in marine spatial planning, renewable power growth; in addition to session on constructing and perfecting related insurance policies and legal guidelines, he mentioned.
Delegates shared worldwide experiences and subsequent steps in growing marine spatial planning and offshore wind energy in Vietnam.
They highlighted the essential function of marine spatial planning in figuring out appropriate areas for offshore wind power tasks; and the significance of selling progressive applied sciences in growing the blue economic system, responding to impacts of local weather change, and selling power transition.
Ramla Khalidi, UNDP Resident Consultant in Vietnam, mentioned that accelerating marine spatial planning is crucial to unlocking the good potential of offshore wind energy growth in Vietnam, contributing to implementing sustainable growth targets and local weather change response targets.
The participation of all stakeholders within the scheme, particularly the area people, performs an necessary function in making certain that advantages are shared equitably and susceptible teams are protected, she mentioned.
Norwegian Ambassador to Vietnam Hilde Solbakken affirmed that her nation is dedicated to working with companions in Vietnam to advertise sustainable inexperienced progress, defend the marine atmosphere and assist power transition in Vietnam.
She pressured that marine spatial planning will assist the ocean to be managed sustainably, and play an necessary function in realising a shared imaginative and prescient of a inexperienced, sustainable and affluent future, which can be certain that all industries will profit from the ocean whereas marine ecosystems and biodiversity are nonetheless conserved.
