Some question if the US$3 billion deal may yet be revived, given vague terms under the country's resource mobilisation plan announced last year that might allow a renegotiation. Observers say the termination is 'good news' for Vietnam's energy transition goals.

It also said the Song Hau 2 plant, which has since been terminated, utilises more efficient technology which would reduce emissions compared to other coal plants.
