Vietnam has the opportunity to transition towards lowcarbon planning pathways within the power sector that emphasise the uptake of renewable energy technologies – especially solar and wind, which are experiencing rapid cost declines in Vietnam and globally. However, the impact on employment, both in the power sector and more widely, needs to be effectively understood and prepared for by various actors and decision makers in the country.
This study analyses the employment impacts of various scenarios for expanding electricity generation in Vietnam’s power sector.
