This is the first project under the energy cooperation between the locality and Germany’s Mecklenburg-Vorpommern state. The collaboration was initiated in 2017 under the German Development Cooperation Agency (GIZ)’s German Government and Federal State Pilot Programme.
 
The 15,000-USD system was designed by Raach Solar, a premium supplier for photovoltaic systems. It can generate up to 3,546 kWh of electricity each year for the industry and trade department facility.
 
Rainer Brohm, a GIZ expert, said that the system is expected to raise public awareness of solar energy and become a model for the generation of energy of this type in the locality.
 
According to the department’s Vice Director Doan Minh Triet, the identification of local renewable energy potential has been put at the centre of the province’s plan to develop new energy sources. 
 
He said the move helps to meet the locality’s increasing demand for energy, as well as contribute to climate change response, environmental protection, and the reduction of greenhouse gases in Vietnam.
 
The provincial People’s Committee recently approved a project to develop solar power by 2020 with a vision to 2030, in which some 361.4 million kWh of solar power will be produced until 2020, increasing to over 1.16 billion kWh in the post-2020 period.
 
Following the inauguration, the department and GIZ co-organised a training course on how to install, operate, and maintain the solar rooftop system in the locality.
