In August 2004, IIEC was selected to provide technical assistance for a 3-year Commercial Energy Efficiency (EE) Pilot Program in Vietnam sponsored by the GEF through the World Bank. The Commercial EE Pilot Project will seek to test appropriate business models and mechanisms to catalyze a small and sustainable service market to support EE investments in Vietnam. This would be achieved by supporting a small group of commercial service providers or "Project Agents" in all phases of EE project identification, development and implementation.

The overall objective of this project is to develop the capability of Project Agents (equipment manufacturers, equipment suppliers, technical service providers, financial service companies) to implement a critical mass of pilot projects in the commercial sector to test the appropriate business models and establish a sustainable service market to support EE investments in Vietnam. IIEC will be conducting a comprehensive training program for all stakeholders and provide on-site assistance in project development and implementation.
