Vietnam ASEAN Hydrogen Club



Since 2017, Vietnam has become a country with the level of renewable energy development, clean energy in the top 3 of the Asia Pacific region. By November 2021, at the climate conference held in Glasgow UK, the Prime Minister of Vietnam has set a target of net zero emissions of Vietnam by 2050 and by December 2022, Vietnam and the Group 7 plus 2 countries (Norway and Denmark) have signed a grant of 15.5 billion USD from 9 developed countries to support Vietnam's clean energy transition.


According to the Power Planning 8 of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Vietnam submitted to the Prime Minister, power projects using fossil fuels will be converted to co-firing hydrogen and progress to full hydrogen combustion by 2050.


Massively invested renewable energy projects in Vietnam put a lot of pressure on the transmission infrastructure, leading to many projects not being able to connect or connected but unable to discharge their full capacity. In essence, renewable energy is an unstable energy because it depends on the weather. Therefore, policymakers as well as investors are looking for ways to set up electricity storage systems such as batteries, hydrogen or fuel cells used for transportation.


Vietnam is evaluated by international experts and energy organizations as a country with strengths in renewable energy such as wind power, solar power, tidal power, wave power, ocean current power, and biomass power. Vietnam can become the leading clean energy producer and exporter in the region.


Countries in Southeast Asia and Northeast Asia are actively converting to clean energy from fossil similar to Vietnam. Especially the Northeast Asian countries such as Japan, Korea and China have committed to net zero by 2050 and 2060 which require an alternative clean fuel source where hydrogen is a key fuel component.


Against this backdrop, domestic and foreign investors are trying to form an energy storage mechanism in which Hydrogen can play a key role. Mr. Le Ngoc Anh Minh, Executive President of Pacific Group who experienced entrepreneurs in participating in and implementing large-scale energy infrastructure projects. In Vietnam, cooperating with international partners such as Asean and Japan, has carefully researched, discussed and proposed the initiative to establish the Vietnam Asean Hydrogen Club (Vietnam Asean Hydrogen Club) abbreviated as VAHC aims to create a formal playground for policy makers, scientists, researchers, project developers, financial investors, climate change sponsors to form a hydrogen community in Vietnam. South and the ASEAN region. Through VAHC, members, governmental and non-governmental agencies, hydrogen energy campaigners, technologists and investors can meet and transfer resources in terms of human resources, land fund, technology and know-how, finance, construction, supply and consumption of hydrogen at the national and regional level.
