GIZ-Project in Vietnam: Climate Protection through Sustainable Bioenergy Markets (BEM)

With the BEM project, E.Quadrat is further expanding its 7-year activities in Vietnam. As part of the GIZ-funded Vietnamese-German project "Climate Protection through Sustainable Bioenergy Markets (BEM)", E.Quadrat was assigned to lead a team of international experts to carry out capacity building in the field of biomass energy production for the public, private and financial sectors in Vietnam.

The Climate Protection through Sustainable Bioenergy Markets in Vietnam project aims to improve the preconditions for sustainable use of biomass for electricity and heat generation in the country. The project focuses mainly on the improvement of planning, technical and financial capacities of respective actors in the biomass energy sector in order to realize bankable investment projects.

The project is organized with three main Action Areas.
• Legal and Regulatory Framework,
• Capacity Development,
• Technology Co-operation.

Within the framework of the project, E.Quadrat has, for example, dealt with activities such as
• Support to identifying pilot projects with high biomass potential for the successful implementation of pre-/ feasibility studies,
• Train and support national experts in implementing pre-/feasibility studies,
• E-learning (webinars and seminars) for various stakeholders (engineers, financial institutions, policy makers) to teach the basics of bioenergy use,
• Studies on grid balancing and co-firing of biomass.
