Vietnam’s government has agreed to extend the period for the implementation of Decision No.11/2017/QD-TTg dated 11 April 2017 of the Government Prime Minister on the solar power price policy (i.e. – 9.35c kw/h) until “the end of 2020”. More to come to formalize this no doubt but appears to be a straight 18 months extension for all projects (let’s hope there is no devil in the detail). Earlier reports had suggested 6-12 months was being considered and up to 18 months for projects in Ninh Thuan province. An extension was considered inevitable due to the overwhelming interest from investors (close to 8,000 MWp approved in principle by May 2018) and serious regulatory and infrastructure bottlenecks, so it’s very pleasing to see an early and clear call from the government.
