Replacing coal, gas or diesel plants with a mini hydropower plant reduces CO₂ emissions. This project promotes renewable energy in a country where economic development will increase energy demand. This climate protection project in central Vietnam involves the construction of a hydropower plant that supplies electricity to the national grid. Although hydropower is on the increase in Vietnam and more and more such facilities are under construction, coal, gas and diesel plants are often used to supply the grid. Burning these fossil fuels produces climate-damaging greenhouse gases. The project contributes to sustainable development by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the other emissions that are mainly produced by coal power plants.
