Amidst the development of renewable energy around the world, Green Innovation Center has started E-Enhance project, aiming to help improve knowledge and apply renewable energy solutions for organisations and individuals in Vietnam.

The highlight of the project is the platform to promote ideas called “The smart energy schools,”. This platform will provide valuable knowledge on the efficient use of renewable energy at schools. The project will be piloted in at least 10 schools in the north and then spread to other interested areas.

The project will provide a financial support package along with knowledge transfer activities, which will help people in communities to apply sustainable energy models in households and public institutions.

Moreover, the project will also prioritise supporting these disadvantaged communities to produce their own energy to meet basic living needs.

With the message “Sharing and disseminating green future,” the project aims to train 1,000 representatives from socio-professional organisations and locals in transferring knowledge and technology in the renewable energy sector through basic and advanced training courses.

Nguy Thi Khanh, director of Green Innovation Center (GreenID), a non-profit organisation under the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations (VUSTA), told VIR that through this project, GreenID and its partners hope to accompany the Vietnamese government’s efforts to raise awareness and apply sustainable energy solutions in the community in order to contribute to the development of energy efficiency.

E-Enhance is funded by the European Union with non-refundable ODA and co-sponsored by GreenID and German non-profit organisation Independent Institute for Environmental Issues (UFU) for four years from August 2017 to August 2021.
