Hosted by the Clean Energy Investment Accelerator (CEIA) and USAID Vietnam Low Emission Energy Program (V-LEEP)
Due to travel and meeting restrictions related to COVID-19, this webinar series is temporarily replacing the in-person Renewable Energy Buyers Vietnam Working Group normally held in Ho Chi Minh City on a quarterly basis.
The Renewable Energy Buyers Vietnam Working Group is co-organized by the Clean Energy Investment Accelerator (CEIA) and the USAID Vietnam Low Emission Energy Program (V-LEEP). Since 2017, the Working Group has brought together commercial and industrial (C&I) energy users interested in procuring clean energy, as well as renewable energy project developers and investors, and Government of Vietnam representatives.
The recurring Working Group is a platform for corporate RE market stakeholders to collectively identify and work toward policy, regulatory and financing frameworks needed to meet clean energy goals in Vietnam.
This four-part webinar series, spread across the last three weeks of May 2020, is an important opportunity to virtually convene market stakeholders during a pivotal phase of Vietnam’s clean energy transition.
Each webinar will begin at 9:00AM ICT unless otherwise specified.
