Photo Inspiration for
Bac Lieu Province, Vietnam
In addition to rice cultivation, there are many aquaculture facilities in the area of the Mekong Delta. But Bac Lieu Province in southern Vietnam is striving to become the national center of clean energy, with multiple wind power projects being implemented and put into operation.
Bac Lieu has a lot of potential for clean energy development with a 56-kilometer coastline, vast coastal mudflats, windy weather, and an annual sunshine duration of 2,200 to 2,700 hours. The province is also not likely to be affected by such natural disasters as storms, floods, or earthquake, which further increases its potential as a producer of clean energy.
