In September 2011 the Government of Vietnam implemented the National Power Development plan to promote energy security, efficiency, renewable energy deployment and power market liberalisation.

Also, the deployment of wind energy is set as a priority for Vietnam which has a good resource endowment for this technology.

Feed-in tariff for wind plants:

As of June 2011 the government fixed the price the Vientam Electricity company ENV must pay for wind energy purchase at VND 1,614/kWh, equivalent to EUR 0.00006/kWh and entitled ENV for a subsidy of VND 207/kWh of purchased wind power.
