Energy Efficiency Improvement in Commercial and High-Rise Residential Buildings in Viet Nam
The Project has the goal to reduce intensity of GHG emissions from the building sector in Viet Nam. The project objective is to improve the energy utilization performance of commercial and high-rise residential buildings in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi. Realization of this objective will be achieved through implementation of three components (1) Improvement and Enforcement of Energy Efficiency Building Code; (2) Building Market Development Support Initiatives, and (3) Building EE Technology Applications and Replications. Each component comprises a number of complementary activities designed to remove barriers to the stringent enforcement of the revised EEBC, and to the greater uptake of building energy efficiency technologies, systems, and practices in commercial and residential buildings. By EOP, the GEF investment will have catalysed direct GHG emission reduction of about 37,680 tCO2e. The cumulative direct reduction in GHG emissions over the lifetime of the project is envisioned to be 236,382 tCO2e.
What are the project's key outcomes?
The project objective is to improve the energy utilization performance of commercial and high-rise residential buildings in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi.
