Energy Efficiency Standards and Labeling in Vietnam


This report describes the findings of a mission and workshop held in Vietnam in January 2008 to assess the current state of Energy Efficiency Standards and Labeling (EE S&L) activities in Vietnam and to identify potential areas where Vietnam could benefit from international assistance and capacity-building for EES&L.

The scoping mission and the workshop were held in January 2008 in Vietnam and were supported by the Collaborative Labeling and Appliance Standards Program (CLASP) under funding from Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ). Experts from the IEEJ and the Energy Conservation Center, Japan (ECCJ) also participated in the mission.

The Government of Vietnam initiated early action in the field of EE S&L at the beginning of 2000 when a project was initiated with support from the World Bank (WB) and the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) to prepare draft standard documents for fluorescent lamps, ballasts and three-phase electric induction motors.
