Power Shift: Transforming Vietnam into a Renewable Energy Leader


Vietnam’s national energy authority, in collaboration with Eurogroup Consulting, embarked on an ambitious project to transition the country’s energy portfolio towards renewable sources. The initiative aimed to position Vietnam as a leader in renewable energy within Southeast Asia, responding to growing environmental concerns and the global shift towards sustainable energy sources.


Vietnam faced several challenges in shifting away from traditional fossil fuels, including heavy reliance on coal for electricity generation, limited infrastructure for renewable energy, and the need for substantial investment to explore and develop renewable resources. Additionally, public awareness and support for renewable energy initiatives were lacking, further complicating the transition.


Eurogroup Consulting developed a comprehensive strategy that included policy reform, infrastructure development, and public-private partnerships to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy. The plan focused on solar, wind, and hydroelectric power as primary sources for Vietnam’s renewable energy expansion. Key initiatives involved updating regulatory frameworks to encourage investment in renewables, launching pilot projects to demonstrate the viability of new technologies, and initiating campaigns to increase public awareness and support for green energy.


The project commenced with a detailed analysis of Vietnam’s current energy landscape and potential renewable resources. Eurogroup Consulting facilitated discussions between government bodies, international investors, and renewable energy experts to outline a clear path for policy and infrastructure development. Pilot projects in solar and wind energy were launched in strategic locations, showcasing the benefits and feasibility of renewable technologies. A national campaign was implemented to educate the public on the importance of sustainable energy and to garner support for the transition.


To ensure the long-term success of Vietnam’s renewable energy transition, Eurogroup Consulting recommended continuous investment in research and development to improve renewable energy technologies and reduce costs. The firm advised strengthening the grid infrastructure to better accommodate variable renewable sources and to explore energy storage solutions to ensure a stable energy supply. Building capacity and expertise in renewable energy within the country was also highlighted as critical, alongside ongoing efforts to engage the community and stakeholders in the energy transition process.

Engagement ROI

Vietnam’s renewable energy initiative led to a significant increase in the country’s renewable energy capacity, contributing to a reduction in carbon emissions and enhancing energy security. The successful implementation of pilot projects attracted further investment in the sector, both domestically and from international sources, accelerating the growth of renewable energy infrastructure. Public awareness and support for renewable initiatives grew, fostering a culture of environmental stewardship and sustainability. Through this transformative project, Vietnam not only took a significant step towards achieving its environmental and energy goals but also established itself as a renewable energy leader in the region.
