Phu Quoc Island Seeks Renewable Energy
Dr Pham Khanh Toan, head of the institute, said that a biogas or biomass combustion power plant would help to ease energy shortages and environmental problems currently facing the island, which was identified by the Vietnamese Government in November as the country's biggest eco-tourism complex of the future.
"Renewable energy plants will help Phu Quoc Island achieve sustainable development," said Toan during a seminar organised by the Energy Institute and Can Tho University last week that unveiled a feasibility study for a biogas or biomass combustion plant.
Can Tho University's Dr Do Ngoc Quynh, the local project co-ordinator, said that since the Government approved a master development plan in November, the number of tourists visiting the island was expected to increase from last year's 131,000 to 350,000 by 2010.
