3 INDUSTRY SNAPSHOT Vietnam is well endowed with renewable energy (RE) resources which are distributed through-out the country. These resources can be exploited to meet Vietnam s rapidly increasing energy demand as well as environmental protection. The majority of Vietnam s existing RE resources are small hydro power, biomass energy, wind energy, solar energy and geothermal energy. Despite the high potential, RE electricity production in Vietnam is still negligible. [Source: Institute of Energy, 2008] The Government of Vietnam has recognized the important role of RE in supplying sustainable energy and recently in tackling climate change. The Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) is preparing the Master Plan on RE development for the period up to 2030 with outlook to 2050 to submit to the Prime Minister for approval.

Article 42. Scientific and technological development for economical cal and efficient use of energy, Clause 3f: Research and development of new energy resources to substitute traditional fuels.

18 Energy Development Strategy and Renewable Energy (Prime Minister s decision No. 1855/2007/QD-TTg) Ensuring sufficient supply of energy to meet the demands of socioeconomic development. Investigate and evaluate the potentiality of new and renewable energy; develop plans to use new energy resources. Achieving a share of new and renewable energy in the total commercial primary energy supply of 3% in 2010, 5% in 2020, and about 11% in Public units (hospitals, schools, state offices, restaurants...) that use hot water, should have 10% using solar water heater. The State encourages the exploitation and utilization of new and renewable energy: gives funding support for investigation, research, pilot manufacturing, develop typical point programs using renewable energy; free import duties, production taxes, equipment circulation, new and renewable energy technologies;

19 Bio-fuel development program (Prime Minister s decision No. 177/2007/QD-TTg) Main objectives: By 2010, build up and develop various models of trial production and use of bio-fuels with a total annual output of 100,000 tons E5 and 50,000 tons B5 = 0.4% of national gasoline and diesel demand. By 2015, the phase reach 5 million tons of E5, B5 = 1.0% national demand for gasoline and diesel. Vision to 2025: Technology for producing bio-fuel in Vietnam reach the world s advanced level. Production of ethanol and biodiesel reach 1.8 million tons, meet about 5% the need of the gasoline and diesel nationwide.

20 Energy policy in responding to the climate change (Prime Minister s decision No. 158/2008/QD-TTg) Using energy efficiency and conservation in the orientation adapted to climate change; Using effectively and appropriately the natural sources, developing and turning power, natural gas and hydropower into great advantage; Developing and exploiting new forms of energy: geothermal, wind, solar and nuclear energy; Researching and applying technologies to reduce emissions and saving energy (focus on the use of renewable energy); Proposing solutions to respond to climate change in commercial activities, implementing pilot projects. Installing electricity generation plants from RE sources for grid connection (Prime Minister s Decision No.110/2007/QD-TTg) Up to 2015, new 2,451 MW to be installed, 241MW/year on average; From 2016 to 2025 new 1,600 MW to be installed, 160 MW/year on average.

21 BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES IN RE IN VIETNAM RE support mechanism: Standpoint of Ministry of Industry and Trade Encouraging enterprises in setting up production, assembly line for new & RE equipments, such as: solar water heater, small hydropower, wind turbines, biogas plants at suitable locations. Co-operating with developed countries in technology transfer to assembly high technology equipments like solar cell, wind power and step by step domestic assembling and production. Supporting financial investment for RE survey, research, trial production, demonstration utilization. Tax-favor for imported equipment, new technologies; copyright protection for valuable inventions, technique innovations. Allowing domestic and foreign individuals, organizations to coordinate investment, exploitation new and RE resources in the basic of gaining profit for both partners.

22 BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES IN RE IN VIETNAM Legal framework on investment Law on Investment 2005; Law on Enterprise 2005; Decree No. 108/2009/ND-CP of the Government on investment in the form of BOT, BTO or BT contract: Decision 71/2010/QD-TTg regulating pilot investment using PPP form of investment: From January 1 st 2011, Việt Nam will pilot the public-private partnership (PPP) form of investment in nine sectors, includes (1) roads, highway bridges, tunnels and ferries for road traffic; (2) railway, railway bridges and tunnels; (3) urban transportation; (4) airports, sea and river ports; (5) clean water supply systems; (6) electrical plants; (7) healthcare (hospitals); (8) environment (waste treatment plants); and (9) other projects for infrastructure development and/or the provision of public services as decided by the PM. The Decision requested that the pilot model would attract private and foreign investment for infrastructure development and the provision of public services. It is expected to lay a foundation for further improvement of policies and laws on PPP.

23 BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES IN RE IN VIETNAM Investment incentive policies on renewable energy Until now, direct investment incentive policies for RE projects have not been issued, but RE investment can be applied related policies: Prime Minister s Decision No. 129/2009/QĐ-TTg approving the scheme on Investment incentive policy mechanism in natural resources and environment protection sector. Prime Minister s Decision No. 130/2007/QĐ-TTg issuing some mechanisms, financial policies applying for the clean development mechanism (CDM) projects. Prime Minister s Decision No. 55/2007/QĐ-TTg approving a list of prioritized industrial sectors, key industrial sectors for the period , with the vision to 2020 and some encouraging development policies. Government's Decree No. 61/2010/NĐ-CP approving the incentive policies for business investment in agriculture and rural development. Government's Decree No. 80/2010/NĐ-CP specified regulations on international cooperation, investment in science and technology sector. Government's Decree No. 04/2009/NĐ-CP providing incentives and supports for environmental protection activities. In May 2011, Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai has requested the MOIT to prepare the decree on incentive and supporting mechanisms for wind energy development to attract more investment.

24 BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES IN RE IN VIETNAM Investment incentive policies on renewable energy Following the Government's Decree No. 04/2009/NĐ-CP, the production of clean energy, exploitation of renewable energy resources or waste-to-energy projects can be considered as environmental protection activities, therefore some incentives and supports are as following: - Support in land clearance and land lease fee - Corporate income tax (CIT): 10% in the whole project lifetime. The project located in poor socio-economic condition areas could also enjoy tax exemption in the first 4 years from taxable year and reduction of 50% CIT in the next 5 years. - Import tax: Free for importing of production line or equipment using in the project. - Rapid depreciation etc. However, above policies are indirectly applied. It is expected that the Master plan on RE development until 2030 with the outlook to 2050 will be approved soon this year by the Prime Minister. With the issuance of such master plan, the investment incentive policies on RE development will be also introduced and applied, and that will be the real business opportunities in RE in Vietnam.
