On 24 December 2019, the EU – Viet Nam Energy Facility (EVEF) launched the first call for Expression of Interest (EOI) for Technical Assistance under its Sub-component 1B, which aims to provide technical assistance to non-MOIT stakeholders: Ministries and public institutions at the national and provincial level, stakeholders from the private sector, as well as higher education and research institutions and civil society.

The thematic focus area of the second call for EOI was ““Innovation, Partnerships and Networks – Knowledge Sharing and Technology Transfer to support the market development for renewable energy and energy efficiency in Viet Nam.

By the deadline for EOI Submission on 13 January 2020, the EVEF team received a total of 07 EOIs from Government Ministries, Agencies of the Communist Party of Viet Nam, Provincial Governments, as well as from private stakeholders, universities, and civil society organizations.

The evaluation of the EOIs was carried out from 14-24 January 2020 by an expert evaluation panel. The Panel submitted an evaluation report to the Delegation of the European Union (EUD) to Viet Nam, recommending the allocation of technical assistance to only one (01) best ranking project. After review, the EUD provided no objection to this recommendation.

The project selected for technical assistance is:

All applicants have been contacted and informed about the outcome of the evaluation process. The Technical Assistance will be implemented in 2020 and 2021.
