Hanoi (VNA) – Denmark is willing to
share its experience regarding technologies and products with Vietnam to help
the country achieve goals of energy and sustainable growth, said a Danish

Thomas Egebo, Secretary of State of the Danish
Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate (MEUC), pointed out that sustainable
growth, not growth, remains a challenge to Vietnam.

He was speaking at a ceremony in Hanoi on September
20 to announce the energy outlook report for Vietnam in 2017.

The report is an important product that orients
energy development in line with economic growth, environmental protection and
energy security in Vietnam, according to Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Hoang
Quoc Vuong.

This is one of the most remarkable cooperation
outcomes between the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade and the MEUC
within the framework of the Low Carbon Transition in Energy Efficiency project funded
by the Danish Government.

Built on updated forecasts on macro-economic growth
as well as energy and power demands in Vietnam, the report gives policy
recommendations for the development of electricity and low-carbon emission
energy by intensifying the use of renewable energies and promoting energy efficiency.

It also looks into opportunities and challenges to
Vietnam’s sustainable energy development and energy security. -VNA
