NS-326 - Promoting Up-scaled Use of Energy efficient Air-Conditioning (ACs) and Solar Water Heating Systems (SWHs) in Residential and Commercial Buildings in Viet Nam

Viet Nam

NAMA Seeking Support for Implementation

      A.2Title of Mitigation Action
      A.3Description of mitigation action
      The Building sector is one of the fast growing sectors and the largest energy consumers in Viet Nam, accounting for approximately 30% of the total energy consumption, in which residential and commercial buildings are the most prominent energy users. According to the Ministry of Construction, the annual expansion rate of residential and commercial buildings is 6-7% and they are recognized as a significant GHG emitter in Viet Nam. In addition, approximately 95% of the commercial and high buildings in Viet Nam are not yet considered efficient use of energy. There is thus huge potential for GHG emission reduction from the building sector by applying different measures such as improved energy efficiency of housing cooling and heating systems through technical solutions and comprehensive institutional support from government authorities in the environment, buildings and energy sectors with collaboration from private sectors.

      The NAMA aims to focus on three mitigation actions: (i) conversion to high efficient ACs; (ii) installation of SWHs; and (iii) recovery and destruction of refrigerants of high GWP in ACs. The actions proposed will achieve 22-25% energy savings compared to BAU scenario. Together with GWP refrigerants total emission reduction from the NAMA is expected at 7,572,857 t CO2e over 2019-2030 period, i.e. an annual reduction of 631,071 t CO2e/year. The NAMA is scheduled to be implemented in three phrases: (i) preparation (2018); (ii) pilot implementation (2019-2020); and full scale implementation (2021-2030) in which mid-term implementation (2021-2025) and long-term implementation (2026-2030). Co-benefits of the NAMA will cover economic, social, environmental and technological benefits which include lower demand for electricity and fossil fuel, enhanced technology transfer, and job creation and improved air quality.

      The NAMA includes establishment and operation of a system for recovery and thermal destruction of high GWP refrigerants for the first time in Viet Nam. This is a fundamental change compared to the normal practice of free discharge to the environment. The financial mechanism for NAMA includes fee and tax system based on the labelling system and payment for recovery and thermal destruction services for the first time in Viet Nam. This will induce vital transformational change to raise the awareness of the consumers and technical workers on GHG emission reduction and carbon pricing for equipment for the first time in Viet Nam.
