Mainstreaming Energy Efficiency Through Business Innovation Support Vietnam (MEET-BIS Vietnam)
The MEET-BIS Vietnam project promotes sustainable production of urban SMEs in Vietnam by providing them access to affordable clean energy and water and energy efficiency products through scalable, commercially viable business innovation packages. MEET-BIS offers an innovative approach to create a multiplier effect in promoting sustainable production.
The MEET-BIS project develops public private partnerships with key players in energy efficiency technologies (partner companies include international firms such as Philips Lighting, OSRAM, and Schneider as well as leading Vietnamese firms) and water management technologies. MEET-BIS does not sell efficiency technologies for SMEs, but assists the partner suppliers to do so. To enhance their sales capacity for these products, the project assists in:
The result will be that 750 SMEs have shown interest in energy efficiency and water saving technology, and 315 have bought EE or WS products over the project life span. It is foreseen that over 6250 SME’s will be reached in the five years after the project has ended.
