Rapid population growth and economic development in the world lead to a sharp increase in demand for energy. Meanwhile, non-renewable energy sources are forecast to become exhausted soon. In Vietnam, energy use over the last decade has increased by more than 100%.. It is expected that, by 2020, Vietnam will need more than 500 TWh and the figure might double by 2030. To meet current energy demand, Vietnam needs to import2.4% of the total primary energy consumption. Investment in renewable energy in Vietnam has also been modest; though the country has enormous potential for renewable energy, particularly wind energy, wave power, hydro tides and currents.
In this context, AVSE Global, in collaboration with Hanoi University of Civil Engineering (NUCE), under the auspices of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), holds the Vietnam Symposium on Advances in Offshore Engineering (VSOE 2018), entitled “Energy and Geotechnical” from 01 to 03 November 2018 in Hanoi. The workshop focused on: 1) Discussing energy policy between the Government and investors, scientists at home and abroad; 2) Raising awareness of renewable energy; 3) Serving energy development strategy; 4) Through international channels, updating and transferring technologies and techniques of generating and exploiting offshore energy; and 5) Opening up investment opportunities for Vietnamese and international companies.
