VSSES has built a team of local and regional experts to service customers in Vietnam centrally via its headquarters. The office will also be a centre for training employees on renewable energy operations, including digital applications. Recently, VSSES commenced the construction and installation of approximately 8 megawatt-peak (MWp) of rooftop solar projects in Binh Duong  Province, targeted for completion by end of the year.

The renewable energy to be generated would help lower the carbon footprint for VSSES customers located within the industrial parks.
