Description This DSM operation is associated with the IDA System Efficiency Improvement, Equitization and Renewables Project (SEIER) and part of a long-term power sector strategy for Vietnam. The project consists of two components: (i) a second phase DSM component under Electricty of Vietnam (EVN); and (ii) implementation of a pilot commercial EE program by the Ministry of Industry (MoI) to support emerging Energy Service Industry. The EVN component consists of four large DSM programs and supporting activities to achieve major reductions in peak load, improve system load factors, transform select lighting markets, and assist customers with ongoing tariff reforms. The MoI component seeks to test and develop business models and mechanisms to support commercial EE services and investments in industrial and commercial facilities.
Implementation Status The project was approved by Bank’s Board in June 2003. The Project became effective in November 2003. Generally, main components managed by EVN and the Ministry of Industry have successfully started. The Action Plan and Procurement Plan were prepared, discussed with the Bank and finally have been approved. The PMB with international adviser and all supporting staff are in place and started works. In parallel, EVN has carried out several activities which complement the original project design. Project closing is set for June 2007.
