Pilot demonstration of Energy Service Company (ESCO) model for greenhouse gases emission reduction in the cement sector

This technical assistance advances the following Sustainable Development Goals:
Industry, innovation and infrastructure
Climate action

This Technology Transfer Advances Viet Nam's

  • Nationally Determined Contribution to reduce GHG emissions by 8% by 2030 compared to the Business as Usual scenario (BAU); an amount that could be increased up to 25% with international support.


Vietnam's rapid economic growth and urbanization have led to increased demand for cement for the construction and the infrastructure sectors. Cement production is a highly energy intensive production process. Based on the results of  the NAMA cement project, the development of an energy savings company (ESCO) model has been identified as a force for private investment in energy efficiency measures. ESCO's services can provide technologies for energy efficiency projects, GHG emissions reduction and ensure that the energy savings involved will be able to cover the project cost over time.
