Climate Protection through Sustainable Bioenergy Markets in Viet Nam

In order to achieve the reduction targets planned in the NDC, the government in Vietnam is continuously expanding the utilisation of biomass waste to generate electricity and heat. The project supported the development of a sustainable market in this area. To this end, it advised consultants, project developers and investors on the preparation of feasibility studies. The programme also provided the authorities with a set of tools for approving biomass energy projects. It trained employees of financing institutions in the assessment of applications and worked with them to develop a financing mechanism to subsidise corresponding investments. Technology partnerships were initiated between national and international companies research and development institutions to develop locally customised solutions.
