Workshop: Economic analysis of coal-fired power plant development in Vietnam

GreenID and Carbon Tracker Initiative will hold a workshop on the “Economic analysis of coal-fired power plant development in Vietnam”.                                                                                                                                                                  

In the context that Vietnamese energy policies are under the process of being updated and revised, there are many different perspectives of sustainable development that have been discussed, including: technology, socio-environmental, energy security, and so on… Economics is another key driving factor for decision making. With the objective of having an in-depth discussion on this aspect, Green Innovation and Development Centre (GreenID), in collaboration with Carbon Tracker Initiative[1], have organized a workshop on the “Economic analysis of coal-fired power plant development in Vietnam”. In this workshop, the key finding and data from a new report titled “Here Comes The Sun (And Wind): Vietnam’s low-cost renewables revolution and its implications for coal power investments”  will be shared and discussed.

[1] Carbon Tracker is a financial thinkta based in the UK that does research on the economic risks and opportunities associated with the transition to a low carbon economy. Over the last two years, Carbon Tracker has undertaken a large effort to model the finances of 95% of global coal capacity across the world. The results of this analysis were then aggregated to create a coal economics portal, resulting in a valuable resource for investors, NGOs, policy advocates, journalists & others.
