According to information of Vietnam Energy Magazine, Binh Dinh province has a large potential of renewable energy as solar and wind power. For the solar power, the average sunny time in this province is around 7 hours per day, solar radiation intensity is estimated at 5.24kWh/m2/day, higher than the national average intensity of 3-5 kWh/m2/day. Regarding wind power, in many areas such as Nhon Hoi Economic Zone, Phu My and Phu Cat coastal communes the wind speed reaches over 6m/ sec.
To promote the solar and wind power potential, Binh Dinh provincial people’s committee has approved the projects on the solar and wind power development planning up to 2030, in which are proposed 42 solar power projects (22 projects in period to 2020 and 20 projects in period of 2021- 2030) with a total capacity of 2,280 MW and 9 wind power projects (5 projects in period to 2020 and 4 projects in period of 2021-2030) with a total capacity of 237 MW.
