The FiT would be subject to fluctuations in the VND/US$ exchange rate and would only apply to projects where the cell efficiency is more than 16% or module efficiency more than 15% – A 90 million person country opening the utility and residential solar power market. Each country is a laboratory (Bahrain doing net metering hit yesterday) – it reminds me just a bit of watching individual US states and their experiments. Utility scale solar power with an almost $.10/W revenue stream will grow the industry – net metering generally does as well. These two programs should lead to significant expansion.

    Industry exemptions of renewable taxes at €17 bln in 2017 in Germany – Yet, public approval for the program stays high. If German economic growth can continue, while the environment can be greened – then the people will support. That industry can afford to keep jobs in house helps – that the renewable industry itself generates significant revenue from global exports that comes back to Germany probably helps a bit.
