Oil pushes past US$47 on vaccine optimism and demand recovery
Oil pushed past US$47 a barrel, extending a remarkable vaccine-driven rally that’s taken many in the market by surprise. Futures in New York rose 0.7% after jumping 2.8% Thursday. The first Covid-19 vaccine expected to be deployed in the U.S. won the backing of a panel of government advisers, helping clear the way for emergency authorization by the Food and Drug Administration. The dollar has also resumed its downward trend, making commodities priced in the currency more appealing. (Bloomberg)
Vietnam’s solar success story and notes for investors
Vietnam has effectively overtaken Thailand as the largest solar market in Southeast Asia with a surge in installed capacity over the past four years since the government issued the first feed-in-tariff (FIT) policy for solar projects. The long-awaited announcement of the FIT policy in 2016 for the solar power industry has resulted in an unprecedented increase in solar capacity and projects waiting for approval. Vietnam’s ground-mounted solar capacity, with less than 10 megawatts (MW) in June 2018, jumped to more than 6,314MW by September 2020, an increase of 141.5% from July 2019, Moritz Sticher stated.
Vietnam, with its economy forecast to grow at 6.5% to 7.5% annually from now until 2030, will require an annual power demand growth rate of 10%. Vietnam’s National Power Development Plan VII (Power Plan 7) for the 2011– 2020 period with a vision to 2030 includes a target to increase renewable energy (RE) from 3.5% of the total electricity production to 4.5% in 2020 and 6% in 2030.
