Vietnam had a boom in rooftop solar installations in December 2020 as installers raced to capture a generous feed-in tariff that expired at the end of the year. This week, Switched On speaks with Caroline Chua, BloombergNEF analyst focused on Southeast Asia, and Jenny Chase, head of solar for BloombergNEF. They talk about how this massive buildout occurred, how it beat BNEF forecasts, and what other market players and policy makers can learn from Vietnam’s big year in solar.
This episode is based on a report titled Vietnam Was Likely the Third-Largest Solar Market in 2020. BNEF clients can access this report on bnef.com or BNEF Mobile, or at BNEF<GO> on the Bloomberg Terminal.
