Regarding the information provided by Enterprize Energy, EVN's General Director, Mr. Tran Dinh Nhan emphasized that the development of renewable energy is a trend encouraged by the Government of Vietnam, demonstrated in electricity pricing mechanism, and favorable investment policies ... In accordance, EVN highly appreciated the development of Ke Ga offshore wind power project and is ready to coordinate and facilitate the successful implementation of the project.

Due to the nature of the large wind power project capacity, at the meeting, the two sides also spent time discussing the project's capacity clearance, method of connection, transmission, and PPA ... with the goal of optimizing the efficiency of the operation of the plant, stabilizing the national electricity system.
