Latest Vietnam policy developments on proposed solar auction schemes and hydropower avoided cost tariff regime
Feb 14 2020

Following the Government of Vietnam (GOV)’s recent decision to transit from a feed-in tariff (FIT) to a competitive auction mechanism for solar power projects, Vietnam Electricity (EVN) issued Official Letter No. 541/EVN-TTD on 4 February 2020 to submit proposed auction plans. This official letter is prepared by EVN based upon a report by the World Bank (WB) on Vietnam solar competitive bidding strategy and framework.

On 15 November 2019, the Ministry of Industry and Trade issued Circular No. 29/2019/TT-BCT amending some articles of Circular No. 32/2014/TT-BCT (Circular 32) on avoided cost tariff (ACT) mechanism for small hydropower projects and annulling Circular No. 06/2016/TT-BCT (Circular 06). This new circular has taken effect since 01 January 2020.
