Description The project will support a long-term programmatic approach to develop renewable energy according to the country’s Renewable Energy Action Plan. The project supports Phase I of the REAP, building renewable energy awareness, demand, and capacity. The project will: (a) building institutional capacity at national, provincial and district levels to implement the Action Plan and develop the necessary policies and regulatory frameworks; (b) facilitate regulatory frameworks that support independent small power producers for small hydro power and other renewable energy generation; (c) establish a fund to finance and support rural community-based electric cooperatives; (d) support development and application of pico-hydro technology; (e) development renewable energy markets and private businesses. This project is the first in a series of projects that are expected to expand renewable energy activities further.
Implementation Status EVN is now implementing its reform plan for the period 2003-2005, which includes the equitization of Khanh Hoa province distribution company. EVN has also preparing the reform plan for 2006-2010 which would involve larger scale equitisation of EVN existing power plants and distribution companies. The small hydro rehabilitation component is on schedule to achieve its objective. The wind component is progressing. The community based renewable energy grids component has made progress after the reassessment of risks related to subprojects screening and selection. The component relating to the promotion of grid connected renewable energy has been started.
