Potential of Bioenergy for Electricity Generation: Viet Nam Subsector Study Highlight


In the pig-pork sector the electricity generation from biogas can be financially attractive.

In the pulp and paper subsector, small and medium enterprises can use bioenergy for boilers to produce stream.

In the cassava-starch subsector bioenergy opportunities exist at CHP large factories or at biogas plants with more advanced designs.

These findings belong to the study, ‘Subsector analysis to utilise bioenergy for heat and power generation’, which was presented at a virtual conclusion workshop held in Hanoi on June 30.

The study was conducted with the support of international and national experts. Based upon preliminary analysis of 23 subsectors, the three most promising ones – namely pig farming and pork production, pulp and paper, and cassava-starch – were selected. Subsequently, 15 field visits and 35 in-depth interviews were conducted at farms and factories of the three subsectors

The study falls within the framework of the ‘Climate Protection through Sustainable Bioenergy Markets in Viet Nam’ (BEM) project, which is jointly implemented by the Electricity and Renewable Energy Authority (EREA) of the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) and GIZ The project is commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
