Hanoi wants to trim down greenhouse gas outflow 15% by 2030

Hanoi will strive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 15 per cent by 2030, according to local authorities.

The Hanoi People’s Committee recently issued a plan for the reduction, with the city aiming to achieve savings of eight-to-10 per cent of total energy consumption in 2020-2030 and about 14 per cent in 2031-2045.

The capital city will promote the use of equipment and machinery with high efficiency, energy-saving, energy audit and enhanced solutions to reduce power consumption and emissions in industrial zones, factories and urban areas.

It encourages the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from energy activities compared to the normal development scenario at 15 per cent in 2030 to 20 per cent in 2045.

In the plan, the proportion of renewable energy sources in the total primary energy supply will reach about two per cent by 2030 and then five per cent by 2045.

The city strives that by 2045, the total capacity of solar power is estimated at about 700MW by installing rooftop solar power in low-rise apartment buildings and high-rise buildings of the city.

To implement the targets, the Hanoi People’s Committee has deployed different measures including developing primary energy sources.

It quickly and sustainably developed the electricity industry to meet the requirements of city industrialisation and modernisation and restructured energy-consuming sectors and regions in parallel with implementing policies on clean, economical and efficient use of energy.

The capital city has also developed sustainable energy infrastructure connecting the region and improved internal resources of the manufacturing and service industries for the energy sector.

Hanoi will continue to renew mechanisms and policies and develop a synchronous, interconnected, modern and efficient energy market.

It will also implement environmental protection policies for the energy sector associated with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
