ESCO Training Course




PROJECT Description

NIRAS is a consulting firm with local offices in Vietnam. It is working to help Vietnam Electricity (EVN) increase its staff’s EE knowledge and capacity. This includes helping EVN better understand the energy service company (ESCO) concept and business model. Under Vietnam’s current legislation, EVN cannot operate as an ESCO or provide energy performance contracting (EPC) services. However, its senior management is actively trying to find a way to develop such a business division and therefore wants to better understand the ESCO business model and concept.



Econoler was hired by NIRAS to prepare, adapt and deliver a six-day comprehensive training session on the ESCO business model to EVN’s senior staff. The training covered the fundamental theory and included several interactive exercises and a field visit to a facility.

As part of a previous EE training assignment, Econoler had already delivered its flagship ESCO training program, the Certified Professional in Energy Performance Contracting (CPE), in Vietnam.  For this NIRAS assignment, Econoler prepared the training materials based on the CPE program and adapted them to the needs of the Vietnamese market. The training materials covered the following topics:

  • An introduction about the ESCO model
  • Financing EPC projects
  • Investment grade audits
  • Measurement and verification of energy savings
  • ESCO policies and market development
  • EPC contracts

As the last activity of this training session, a written examination was administered to test the trainees on the contents taught and learned. Those trainees who passed the exam were each awarded a certificate by Econoler’s EE training service subsidiary, the International Institute for Energy Training (IIET) in recognition of their success in gaining the fundamental knowledge and understanding about the ESCO concept and model. This type of training will be very relevant and useful to EVN as it continues to look for ways to maintain its leadership position in Vietnam’s ESCO and EPC market.
