Potential for Solar Energy Development in Vietnam

Huynh Tan Hoi
Abstract— The world is aiming to reduce its dependence on fossil energy sources, which is reflected in the fact that most countries contribute to the common efforts to reduce pollution and increase the advantages of energy in development. Therefore, investing in clean energy is an indispensable trend for a nation to ensure energy security and sustainable development in the future. This energy source is invested, researched and used worldwide to reduce environmental pollution and is considered an effective solution to limit global warming. Vietnam has great potential for developing energy sources, but the development of these power sources, especially solar power in Vietnam is still limited. Difficulties and challenges are always posed to managers in the process of developing this renewable power development policy. The paper analyzes the potential energy sources that have been used in Vietnam to determine the importance of this energy source. At the same time, the article also provides a few suggestions to find solutions to effectively apply solar source in accordance with the actual situation of the country. The opportunities for passive solar technologies are mentioned, in parallel, the use of integrated methods to reduce carbon emissions generated from buildings and the techniques commonly used in passive solar recovery system has a huge meaning.

Index Terms— Energy, environment, potential, technology.
