Currently, primary energy sources do not meet the economy’s energy demand. Vietnam has to import coal for electricity generation and will import liquefied petroleum gas from 2023.

At the Vietnam Energy forum held recently, the Ministry of Industry and Trade said it is time to apply energy efficiency solutions.


Renovating, upgrading and rearranging production lines are important for businesses to save energy and improve productivity as well as product quality.

Experts said applying new technologies is an effective way to save energy in the industrial production amidst surging demand and problems in power supply. Besides, the amendment of the current Law on Economical and Efficient Use of Energy might be among other measures.-VNA
