Trungnam Group, as it is commonly known, is working with a financial adviser to sell about a 30% to 35% stake in its portfolio comprised mainly of wind and solar projects, the people said. A deal could value the assets at more than $1 billion, said the people, who asked not to be identified as the process is private.

Deliberations are ongoing and there is no guarantee Trungnam will proceed with the potential divestment, said the people. A representative for Trungnam declined to comment.

Growing demand for cleaner energy sources has boosted interest in renewable infrastructure assets. Global Infrastructure Partners agreed to buy clean energy company Atlas Renewable Energy for close to $2 billion to bolster its presence in Latin America while China General Nuclear Power Corp. is considering selling its portfolio of renewable energy assets in Europe, Bloomberg News reported this year.

Founded in 2004, Trungnam also has interests in construction, infrastructure, real estate and information technology, according to its website. Trungnam has 1.63 gigawatts of electricity contributing to the country's supply as of October 2021. It is the only Vietnamese private enterprise involved in the power transmission process, the website shows.
