Discussion on LNG Energy Market in Vietnam


Event Details

  • Date:

AmCham is conducting a Three Part series of virtual meetings on Vietnam’s surging energy market. Part One was on new Solar Power regulations. Part Two was about unlocking Vietnam’s Wind Power potential. Part Three takes places on May 12 to discuss Vietnam’s fast-growing LNG market.

All estimates show rapid growth in the demand for electricity in Vietnam. With a robust economy, this high growth is expected to continue to push electricity demand even higher. Current electricity generation, largely relying on coal and hydropower, is unable to keep up with demand and supply problems are expected soon. The government is moving their focus to importing LNG to solve this shortage.
