During the COP26 Meeting held in Glasgow last year, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh declared that Vietnam aims reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. As a stepping stone to this target, Vietnam has announced ambitious renewable energy targets and will double clean energy capacity by 31-38 GW leading to a 15-20% share of the country’s total energy supply replacing coal, which will be phased out in the 2040s.

District Cooling is an energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, and financially viable solution to meet the growing cooling demand and reach climate targets in Vietnam. This workshop aims to discuss how to accelerate District Cooling developments in Vietnam, meet the growing green energy demand, reach climate targets, and benefit from international best practices and regional experiences.

The workshop has included case studies of existing and potential District Cooling projects, and different urban energy schemes including industrial energy symbiosis, and policy needs. The session has also explored the design, operation, and how to invest in District Cooling projects in Vietnam, ASEAN, and Globally.
