By 2030, to reach 15-20% renewable energy sources in the total primary energy supply

On February 11, 2020, the Central Executive Committee of the Political Bureau promulgates the Resolution No. 55-NQ/TW on orientation of Vietnam’s National Energy Development Strategy through 2030 with a vision toward 2045.

In accordance with this Resolution, the Central Executive Committee gives specific objectives as follows:

Firstly, to providing sufficient energy for domestic energy demand and satisfy targets of the 10-year socio-economic development strategy for 2021-2030, namely: the total primary energy supply shall reach 175 – 195 million tons of oil equivalent (TOE) by 2030 and 320 – 350 million TOE by 2045; the total installed capacity of power sources shall amount 125 - 130 GW and the power output shall reach 550 - 600 billion KWh by 2030.

Secondly, total final energy consumption shall reach 105 - 115 million TOE by 2030 and 160 - 190 million TOE in 2045. The primary energy intensity shall be expected to be 420 - 460 kgOE/ USD 1,000 (GDP) by 2030 and 375 - 410 kgOE/ USD 1,000 (GDP) by 2045. The share of renewable energy sources in the total primary energy supply shall reach 15 - 20% in 2030 and 25 - 30% in 2045.

To achieve the above goals, handling and restructuring inefficient projects and state-owned enterprises that make losses in the energy sector; Researching and implementing a pilot mechanism for time-limited sales or long-term leases applicable for power plants, fuel storage, oil refineries, etc. possessed by state-owned enterprises are required.

Remarkably, the Central Executive Committee also requests as below: Eradicating obstacles to ensure transparent energy prices set by the market with no cross-subsidies among groups of clients and regions; the State shall regulate through appropriate market instruments (taxes, fees, funds, etc.) and suitable social security policies.

No. 55-NQ/TW








1. After 15 years of implementing the Conclusion No. 26-KL/TW dated October 24, 2003 of the IXthPolitical Bureau on Vietnam’s Power Development Planning and Strategy, and 10 years of implementing the Resolution No. 18-NQ/TW dated October 25, 2007 of the XthPolitical Bureau on Orientation of the Vietnam’s National Energy Development Strategy through 2020, with a vision toward 2050, the energy sector in general and the power sector, in particular, have developed in a rapid and relatively synchronous manner in all sub-sectors and fields, followed the orientation and achieved the proposed specific targets.

Energy supply, particularly including power supply, has basically met the requirements of socio-economic development, and its quality is being improved more and more. The oil and gas extraction industry, oil refining and petrochemistry industry have developed fast; oil and gas extraction output increases, several large-scaled petrochemical refineries are established. A number of large-capacity coal mines were invested, and the extracted volume of commercial coal increased. Hydropower rapidly develops while wind and solar power have recently been developing at high rate. Strong investments in the construction of power supply infrastructure facilitated and provided crucial condition for power supply security. Most of the country has been connected to the national grid including remote, border areas and island. Energy consumption has increased significantly, associating with the change in the energy consumption composition towards industrialization. The larger focus was placed on economic and efficient use of energy. The energy sector is actively transforming to operate under market mechanisms, resulting in the greater mobilization of resources for its investment and development with the involvement of various types of ownership with state-owned enterprises as the core actor. The energy sector has become a dynamic economic sector, with an important distribution in promotion to socio-economic development, ensuring national defense and security in many localities and in the country.

2. However, our country’s energy sector still found a lot of limits. The goal of assuring national energy security still encounters many challenges such as: domestic supply does not meet the energy demand which leads to increasing energy import; many power projects are behind the schedule as defined in plans and master plan; some energy security indicators are fluctuating in a negative manner. The management and extraction of energy resources expose many shortcomings. Efficiency in energy extraction and use is still low. The energy infrastructure is still insufficient and lacks uniformity. Technological qualification in some fields of the energy sector is slowly improved, localization and market support of projects in the energy sector for domestic mechanical products are limited. Human resource quality and labor productivity in some fields remain low. The competitive energy market has not been developed comprehensively, featured by the lack of linkages among sub-sectors and between power generation and transmission. Energy price policies are inadequate and inappropriate for market mechanisms and are not distinguished from social security policies. Some energy projects invested by state-owned enterprises still suffer loss while some oversea energy projects are at risk of capital loss. Adequate attention has not fully paid to the environmental protection in the energy sector which leads to social frustrations.

3. Such limits and drawbacks are resulted from many reasons but mainly from subjective ones. The awareness of the role, position, and importance of the energy sector and the goal of ensuring national energy security is not complete and is not adequately paid attention to. Some energy development issues are delayed in summarizing both policies and actuality and resolving obstacles in energy sources development orientations and concretization of socialist-oriented market mechanisms in the energy sector. In addition, legal regulations of the energy sector, in general and each sub-sector, in particular, are still inadequate, inconsistent and incompatible with international laws. Several mechanisms and policies are not in conformity with market mechanisms and fail to promote the development of a competitive energy market. Policies on development investment in, and management of, energy resources are insufficient and incomplete. Scientific and technological policies are slow in the innovation. Some energy strategies and planning are delayed in their completion and not associated with actual situation and resources for implementation, not in line with socio-economic development planning of localities and other sectors. State management apparatus of the energy sector, in general and of the power sector, in particular, is unstable. In some cases, the assignment of tasks and coordination among ministries, branches and localities are unclear and inconsistent. The research and forecast works are poor; direction and organization to implement policies and laws on energy are not drastic.
