Leading the Transition to Clean Energy

With the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) assistance, IIEC has completed a comprehensive capacity building program in Vietnam focusing on the small and medium enterprise (SME) sector under the “Promotion of Energy Conservation in Small to Medium Scale Enterprises (PECSME)” project. The project was targeted in five industries - Brick, Textile, Pulp & Paper, Ceramics and Food Processing. The project goals include reduction of production costs of 10-15% in addition to GHG emission reduction resulting from energy savings.

The emphasis was on building the capacity of the Energy Efficiency Service Providers (EESPs) and Financial Institutions in Energy Efficiency (EE) program design, implementation and monitoring & verification of savings. The scope included both electricity and thermal systems; and project finance assistance was provided by GEF in the form of a Loan Guarantee Fund. Training programs in EE project development were conducted in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City attended by participants from all Provinces. The training included the conduct of Investment Grade Energy Audits and assistance in packaging project proposals for project funding.
