Development of a PoA Strategy for the Deployment of Mini-Biogas Systems in Small-Scale Pig Production for a Distributed Energy Supply in Viet Nam

As of: September 2021

The project supported the Vietnamese Government’s programme for promotion of biogas becoming available also to microfarms, which were not in a position to make the necessary co-payment for the biogas systems. To this end, it was assessed whether co-financing opportunities could be created by developing a programme of activities (PoA) under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). The project developed also a national baseline for biogas usage data and identified potential pilot sites and participating households. It was also preparing the necessary documentation for registration as a CDM Programme Activity (CPA Design Document and PoA Design Document). Furthermore, the project contributed to a strengthened expertise of local partners needed to establish an implementation structure for a PoA. A handbook for mini-biogas systems at microfarms was another output of the project.

State of implementation/results
