The spokesperson told PV Tech: ”It’s still an early stage project although we have received approval from the provincial government on the investment. The project will only proceed upon announcement of Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) program in Vietnam.”

Reports surfaced this Autumn on the Vietnam government preparing legislation around subsidies for solar, having released a draft in 2015 and developing this further in the first half of the current year.

These reports suggest that the FiT will be set at US$0.112/kWh for utility-scale grid-connected PV projects. Meanwhile rooftop solar will receive net metering credits of between US$0.15-0.18/kWh.

Electricity Vietnam (EVN), the monopoly holding utility in Vietnam, will purchase all the power form such projects.

Back in July, JinkoSolar signed its first power purchase agreements (PPAs) for solar PV projects outside China with 188MW of capacity ready to develop in Mexico.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
