Challenges of Energy Security to the Industrialisation and Sustainable Development in Vietnam
Abstract: Vietnam, during the industrialisation, has been facing the problem of energy security, the manifestation of which is lack of electricity on a large scale, affecting the growth of production and people’s lives. In the past years, the fact that energy development has depended mainly on hydroelectricity and thermo-electricity but taken little care of clean energy has been opening up problems related to environment and sustainable development. Thus, at the same time, Energy Branch has to tackle 2 issues. The first is meeting the demand of energy for industrialization and social-economic growth. The second is developing sustainable energy, particularly safe and renewable power.
