The Climate Technology Centre is seeking a member of its Network to provide technical services related to developing a pilot Energy Service Company (ESCO) for the cement industry in Viet Nam. Selection of the service provider is conducted via the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), which is a co-host of CTCN.
The sustainable and low carbon development of the cement sector is a high priority for the Government of Viet Nam. The national ambitions for low carbon development are formulated in Viet Nam’s Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC), the National Climate Change Strategy and the Nation Green Growth Strategy. As described in the INDC, the Government of Viet Nam has made a commitment to reduce the country’s greenhouse gas emissions across the economy and provides a particular reference to select energy intensive manufacturing industries.
The objective of the CTCN Technical Assistance is to support Vietnam’s Ministry of Construction and the cement sector in Viet Nam to develop a pilot ESCO model using Energy Savings Performance Contracting (ESPC) as an integrated part of the overall NAMA design. The pilot will include an identification and assessment of suitable plant sites for the ESCO model; within these sites to conduct a feasibility study, investment report and investment grade audit for selected technologies as identified in the Readiness Plan for the Cement Sector; to develop a monitoring and verification plan for the ESCO model which will fit into the NAMA framework; and finally to evaluate the pilot ESCO model and provide strategic and operational recommendations for up-scaling the ESCO model for the entire cement sector.
Complete offer must be submitted via the UNIDO e-Procurement portal by 12 December, 17:00 Central European Time.
