On November 23 in HCMC, GIZ and the HCM City Export Processing Zones and Industrial Parks Authority Business Association (HBA) co-organised the workshop “Innovative industrial and commercial solar rooftop PV power solutions for Vietnam” for the first time.  

The Investment Guidelines for Commercial-Industrial Rooftop Solar Systems in Vietnam* developed by GIZ and EVNSOLAR, a rooftop solar power platform developed by Vietnam Electricity, were introduced at the event. 

HBA’s representative said that firms operating in the city’s export processing zones and IPs are paying attention to rooftop solar PV power, which has gained impressive development in Vietnam in the recent past. 

Mr. Sven Ernedal, Project Director of GIZ’s Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (4E), affirmed that the successful collaboration between GIZ and HBA will contribute to solar power growth and turn it into a trustworthy, budget-friendly and sustainable energy source for Vietnam’s commercial-industrial group.
