Financing Vietnam's Energy Transition

Financing Vietnam's Energy Transition

With Trang Nguyen

Today’s guest is Trang Nguyen, Southeast Asia Lead at the Climateworks Centre in Melbourne.

Her background as an economist spans the public, private, and development sectors - including the UK in Vietnam, KPMG, and GIZ - giving her unique insight into energy investment and financing.

We discussed the opportunities and challenges of Vietnam’s net-zero commitment, the Just Energy Transition Partnership and its potential role in catalyzing clean energy financing, the importance of project bankability and currency-based investment risks, and the prospect of Vietnam becoming a clean energy manufacturing hub.
