Programme Overview


Since 2013, energy has become one of the priorities of the Vietnamese-German cooperation, establishing the GIZ Energy Support Programme.

The Programme is a partnership between Viet Nam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. It aims to contribute to Viet Nam's emissions reduction strategy and green growth strategy by improving the existing regulatory framework for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency to foster private sector investment and by increasing the professional and organizational capacities of key institutions and stakeholders.

Activities which are carried out in all the projects of the Programme are under one of three action areas: Legal and Regulatory Framework, Capacity Development, and Technology Cooperation.

Working closely with the MOIT, the Programme is supporting Viet Nam to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency.
