“Technical Assistance for the Implementation of the EU ‐ Viet Nam Energy Facility” (in short EU – Viet Nam Energy Facility) is a Joint Technical Cooperation Project between the European Union, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) under the framework of Phase II of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency. The project is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in close cooperation with the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
The Project is co‐financed by the EU and by the Federal Republic of Germany. GIZ has been commissioned by the BMZ with the implementation of the Project as part of the BMZ project “Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (4E), Phase II” (in short: 4E Project).
The Project complements the EUR 100 Million sector reform contract (SRC) component of the Energy Sector Policy Support Programme (ESPSP) concluded between the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) and the European Union in December 2017.
The aim of the Project is to contribute to the enhancing of governance of the energy sector with a view to facilitate the shift to a more sustainable energy development path in Viet Nam. The Project will also contribute to the implementation of the regulatory framework needed to achieve Viet Nam’s commitment to reduce its energy‐related green gas emission in the context of the Viet Nam’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
The Overall Objective
