Infographics: Vietnam Energy Access

 

Viet­nam has tremen­dous poten­tial for off-grid renew­able ener­gy sys­tems, which are cost com­pet­i­tive against grid exten­sion in rur­al areas with chal­leng­ing ter­rain that hin­ders nav­i­ga­tion and con­nec­tion. Elec­tri­fy­ing rur­al areas in Viet­nam with renew­ables is at least 20% cheap­er than extend­ing the grid. Access to elec­tric­i­ty improves rur­al house­holds’ access to infor­ma­tion and val­ue-added exten­sion ser­vices (e.g., in the agri­cul­tur­al sec­tor), there­by improv­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties to gen­er­ate addi­tion­al income.
