Infrastructure and capital are two important factors for general gas and hydro-electricity projects to operate.
Capital and infrastructure must be large Looking back on the conditions to develop electricity and gas in general at present, although Vietnam has a strong advantage in offshore offshore gas reserves, but, in addition to the need for policies to encourage the development of electricity and gas such as wind power and solar power, the capital and infrastructure for the gas power plant is very large and synchronous. As shared by Mr. Adam Moncrieff, running Allen & Overy Law Firm, to develop the electricity and gas market in Vietnam, requires huge capital, especially from the domestic private sector and foreign capital for investment. construction of infrastructure, gas pipeline, transshipment port system, power plant …
Agreeing with this view, Mr. Tran Viet Ngai, Chairman of Vietnam Energy Association, said that to ensure the electricity and gas market in general develop and electrify hydrogen gas in particular, two factors must be ensured: Yes source of raw materials and sufficient infrastructure through investment in construction of factories that meet technology standards and ensure the environment. Concerning environmental factors, the experience of attracting Australia’s brown coal gas investment shows that to produce 3 tons of hydrogen gas, about 160 tons of brown coal is needed, in one year, the project may emit 100 tons of carbon dioxide, equivalent to emissions from 20 cars.
