PROJECT OBJECTIVE

USAID will help Vietnam continue its transition to a clean, secure and market-based energy sector by increasing the deployment of advanced energy systems, improving energy sector performance, and increasing competition in the energy sector.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

INCREASE DEPLOYMENT OF ADVANCED ENERGY SYSTEMS USAID V-LEEP II works with the Government of Vietnam (GVN) to mobilize private sector investment to increase the deployment of advanced energy systems and will support project design for clean energy developers and provide technical assistance to lenders for clean energy investment.

IMPROVE ENERGY SECTOR PERFORMANCE USAID and GVN work together to improve energy planning and operations practices to enhance energy sector performance. As Vietnam prepares to launch its Eighth National Power Development Plan, USAID V-LEEP II will provide technical assistance for implementation of the plan, as well as support for grid integration and dispatch of variable renewable energy.

INCREASE COMPETITION IN ENERGY SECTOR In pursuit of a sustainable and market-based energy sector, USAID V-LEEP II will promote transparency in procurement, monitoring, and evaluation of the Direct Power Purchase Agreement Pilot Program and engage in workforce and provincial government capacity building and other similar competitive procurement mechanisms.

PROMOTE INNOVATION, INCUBATION, AND INCLUSION Recognizing the power of the private sector, USAID V-LEEP II provides grants to support innovative approaches to mobilize private investment in advanced energy systems, facilitate incubation and acceleration programs, and support empowerment for women energy professionals.
