A Vietnam Technology and Energy Forum convened on September 17 to boost technological applications for effective use of traditional energy sources and transfer of new energy technologies.

Speaking at the forum, deputy minister of Science and Technology Tran Van Tung highlighted the progress made by the energy sector and the shortcomings it faces due to the shortage of domestic supply.

He said the sector prioritises boosting the research, application, and development of energy technology. To master new technologies and promote development of local ones, there is a need for the involvement of ministries, sectors, localities, businesses, and investors, he added.

The deputy minister noted that the government has worked to improve energy effectiveness via setting up a legal framework, diversifying supply sources and giving support to renewable energy, while putting forth measures to mobilise investment into the sector, among other measures.

Participants shared their views on the government’s related policies and orientations as well as energy support programmes.

They talked about issues related to the policy for sustainable infrastructure development for energy-related manufacturing and services, energy restructuring in line with sustainable energy development, and technology trends in the world and the possibility of their application in Vietnam.

They also exchanged views on measures to step up international cooperation and policy-planning capacity, the development of power systems in line with national energy security, and credit incentives for high-tech energy projects, among others./.
