Climate change is a serious global challenge. Vietnam is one of the developing countries, heavily affected by the impact of climate change. At COP26, Vietnam made strong commitments with 150 countries around the world to commit to bringing net emissions to "zero" by the middle of the century. Together more than 100 countries have joined the Leaders' Glassow Declaration on Forests and Land Use; together with 48 countries participating in the Global Declaration on the transition of coal power to clean energy; together with 150 countries participating in the Alliance for Action 2 for Safe Adaptation, etc. Resolution No. 55-NQ/TW of the Politburo on orientations of Vietnam's national energy development strategy to 2030, with a vision to In 2045, the development of the energy industry in general and the electricity industry, in particular, was assessed as follows: “Investment in the construction of electricity supply infrastructure has a strong development, which is an important condition for ensuring supply security. electrical response. Bringing electricity from the national grid to almost every part of the country, including remote, border, and island areas. Vietnam is a nascent offshore wind market, with abundant wind resources and growth fundamentals, becoming the leading offshore wind market in Southeast Asia. Therefore, the development of supportive policies and breakthrough mechanisms to develop power source projects and a roadmap to build a power grid for power transmission offshore wind is identified as a strategic renewable energy source. In the long term, associated with the implementation of Vietnam's maritime strategy is a top priority. This paper presents the current situation of the offshore wind power industry and the application opportunities of fixed turbine foundation technology in the future in Vietnam.
