In 2014, the energy sector contributed 53.4% of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Viet Nam. The energy sector in general and power generation in particular plays an important role for achieving the target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions under the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).

Regular GHG Inventory is required to monitor and evaluate the implementation of the objectives of the Climate Change Convention. Currently, according to the guidance of the UNFCCC, the emission factor of Viet Nam grid electricity is calculated based on the tool from the year 2010.

 Developing the emission factors (EF) of the greenhouse gas from thermal power plants will support the implementation of the GHG inventory in the power sector, for setting up the roadmap, assessment and monitoring of the CO2 reduction activities in each thermal power plant as well as a whole power sector.

CTCN Support
