Renewable energy in Vietnam is dominated by hydroelectricity, which supplied over 38% of the country's electricity in 2016.[1] Other renewable sources such as wind, biomass, and solar are marginal, accounting for 0.4% of electricity generation.[1]

The government is planning to increase investment in renewable energy for energy security and economic sustainability. Targets for 2030 include an increase in wind power capacity to 6 GW and solar power to 12 GW, from current negligible levels.[2] In 2030, wind and solar power are planned to account for 2.1% and 3.3% of total electricity generation, respectively.[2]
