IEEP Project: Energy Saving - The Key to Sustainable Development in Vietnam

1. What is the IEEP project?

Energy is a key factor for the socio-economic development of each country. However, inefficient use of energy will cause negative consequences for the environment and energy security. Therefore, saving and using energy effectively is one of the important solutions to meet increasing energy demand, while contributing to environmental protection and minimizing climate change.

In that context, the IEEP Project (energy saving in small and medium enterprises in Vietnam) is a component of the Vietnam - EU sustainable energy transition program ( SEPT). This project is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Department of Energy Saving and Sustainable Development (Ministry of Industry and Trade) for a period of 5 years. (from 2023 to 2027).

The overall goal of the project is to promote an increase in market demand and apply energy saving solutions in industry to achieve better energy use results, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce carbon emissions as well as improve productivity and competitiveness of industries. Vietnam's industry.

The IEEP project includes 3 main components:

  • Strengthening the institutional and policy framework: Component This is to complete regulations and instructions on energy management systems according to ISO 50001 and optimize main energy use systems; Develop incentive mechanisms, financial and technical support for businesses to apply energy saving solutions; strengthen the role of relevant organizations in promoting energy saving in industry.
  • Implement capacity building and enhancement programs: Collaborate This section aims to create a human resource with high technical and financial qualifications to promote the application of energy management systems and system optimization in industrial enterprises; increase awareness and capacity of stakeholders about the benefits and ways to save energy; create a network of organizations providing high-quality energy saving services.
  • Implement projects on energy management systems and system optimization: This component aims to support industrial enterprises in applying energy management systems according to ISO 50001 and optimizing main energy-using systems such as steam, compressed air, electricity, cooling, lighting, etc. This component focuses on 10 target industries including: paper and pulp, food processing, seafood processing, textiles and garments, chemical and fertilizer production, rubber processing, metallurgy and steel, and cement , plastics and beverages.

The development and implementation of the IEEP Project demonstrates the efforts of the Ministry of Industry and Trade with the technical support of UNIDO to perfect regulations define and guide energy management systems according to ISO 50001 and optimize key energy use systems as well as strengthen technical and financial human resources to promote the application of energy management systems and widely optimize systems in Vietnamese industrial enterprises.

2. Training program for energy management system experts according to ISO 50001 standards

Experienced teachers from Lien European Union and UNIDO

Chap The training program for experts on energy management systems according to ISO 50001 Standard is an indispensable part of the IEEP Project. This program is designed to provide in-depth knowledge and necessary skills for professionals, helping them apply and maintain energy management systems according to this international standard in organizations and businesses. This is an important step in promoting energy saving and environmental protection, while contributing to the sustainable development of the community and society.

This training program The main purpose is to provide the necessary knowledge and skills for energy management system experts, helping them promote the application and maintenance of energy management systems according to ISO 50001 Standard in organizations. and businesses. In this way, the program not only contributes to improving productivity and energy efficiency but also minimizes negative impacts on the environment.
