By supporting sustainable projects through Ecologi, we can make an immediate difference to the people and places that really need it.
One of the Gold Standard verified initiatives we have supported so far is Wind Power Generation in Vietnam.
“Demand for electricity in Vietnam has grown by an average of 10% each year over the past five years, and continues to grow in line with Vietnam’s rapid economic growth.
In 2020, over half of Vietnam’s electricity was generated from coal. To reduce reliance on coal in line with the Glasgow Climate Pact, Vietnam needs to increase its renewable energy generation capacity. By 2030, Vietnam aims to be producing 30GW of electricity annually from wind power.”
This project will generate approximately 320,000 MWh of renewable electricity every year, helping to bridge the gap between supply and demand that currently exists.
“By replacing electricity generated from fossil fuel fired power plants with electricity generated using wind power, this project will prevent around 143,000 tonnes of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere every year.”
