Vietnam Low Emission Energy Program held CMVP Program

The Vietnam Low Emission Energy Program (V-LEEP), funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is designed to assist the Government of Vietnam (GVN) in establishing an effective policy, regulatory, and incentive environment for low-emission growth in the energy sector, while simultaneously attracting public- and private sector investment in renewable energy development and industrial energy efficiency. On March 24-26, V-LEEP partnered with the Association for Energy Engineers (AEE) to deliver a training course on the fundamentals of energy measurement and verification to representatives from industry associations and energy service companies across Vietnam. Course participants were chosen from a pool of over 50 applicants. Participants hailed from a cross-section of Vietnam’s most energy intensive industrial sectors including textiles, cement, and steel. Other participants represented stakeholders of Electricity Vietnam and energy service companies.

This 2.5 day training completed by 28 participants provided a deep dive into the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) and other industry standards and best practices in energy management, measurement, and verification. In completing the course, participants had the opportunity to strengthen their skill sets in the areas of professional standards of measurement and verifications (M&V), improved practice and techniques  for M&V, and successful strategies for  M&V team development. Participants will be taking a in depth knowledge of the process for M&V project design back to their home organizations, including an understanding of baseline adjustment, savings types, interactive effects, cost/accuracy tradeoffs, transparency, and methods for analysis.

The Certified Measurement & Verification Professional (CMVP®) Program was held at Hanoi Club Hotel in Hanoi.

This training was made possible by the support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
