Restrictive capacity cap in Vietnam to connect solar to power grids affecting UK energy sector exporters/investors
Trade barrier summary
Power plant developers in Vietnam can directly supply power to other entities through rooftop solar without being connected to the electricity grid.
But according to Circular 12/2017/TT-BCT, any rooftop solar system with a capacity of more than 1m MW needs a power operation licence from the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT).
Increasing the limit would fully capture the benefits of investment in rooftop solar energy systems.
