Vietnam – Power Development Plan 8 – Update on the implementation of the PDP 8

Following the issuance of the Power Development Plan VIII under Decision No. 500/QD-TTg of the Prime Minister dated 15 May 2023 (PDP 8), on 7 June 2023, the People’s Committee of Ca Mau Province (Ca Mau PC) issues Official Letter No. 4201/UBND-KT on the proposal to recognize the list of projects under PDP 8 (Official Letter 4201). The submission of Official Letter 4201 is due to the fact that, since the PDP 8 has not specified the renewable projects in the power planning, it is the provincial authorities’ obligation to submit the list of potential renewable projects for the evaluation of the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) and the Prime Minister.

According to Official Letter 4201, the Ca Mau PC expressly proposes to prioritize the development of renewable sources of energy, especially offshore wind and LNG. As for the detailed renewable projects, Ca Mau PC proposes the total capacity for renewable energy of 13,582 MW, including 34 wind power projects (13,068 MW), 2 biomass projects (48 MW), 3 waste to energy projects (16 MW), 1 LNG project (1,500 MW). Additionally, 16,000 MW of off-grid solar and wind power projects are expected to be used for production of green hydrogen and electricity export.
