HANOI -- Vietnam aims to produce 100,000-500,000 metric tons of hydrogen a year by 2030 as part of its energy transition efforts, according to the country's hydrogen development strategy adopted earlier this month. The output would be raised to 10-20 million tons by 2050, including green hydrogen, according to a government document detailing the strategy reviewed by Reuters. The production, distribution and usage of hydrogen will help "meet the country's national targets for climate change, green growth and to meet its net zero target by 2050," the document said. The hydrogen output will partly replace natural gas and coal at power plants by 2030, the document said, adding that hydrogen will also be used for transport and for fertiliser, steel and cement production. By 2050, hydrogen will be responsible for 10% of the country's electricity generation, it added.
