In the past two decades, Vietnam has been experiencing rapid economic growth, with GDP growing by 6.8 percent in 2017. Economic growth has resulted in significant improvement in the quality of the people’s lives and poverty reduction. In 2015, Vietnam became a net energy importer with an import share of energy at 5%, which is expected to grow. By 2035, total final energy demand is estimated to increase by 2.5 times from the level of 54 Mtoe in 2015.

published by Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency in 2018

In 2010, the city used roughly 17.9 petajoules of energy in various forms. Lack of local fossil fuel resources results in 100 percent reliance of Da Nang on energy imports. While notable solar energy potential and local wind resources are present, their utilisation has not yet started in the city. Transportation accounts for almost half of the city’s energy consumption, followed by industry (21 percent).

The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) introduced Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) with the aim to create more transparency about the energy performance of individual buildings. To date, the implementation of this instrument varies significantly across Europe in terms of scope, information, comparability and user-friendliness, limiting its acceptance by users as well as its market penetration.
