Hanoi Promoting Energy Efficiency Across City

THE Vietnam News Service reports that the city of Ha Noi is promoting the efficient use of energy and resources by tightening management of energy-consuming equipment and vehicles.

The city’s municipal Department of Industry and Trade will work with relevant agencies to supervise capacity, technology and environment standards at production facilities, as well as energy labelling on machines and equipment at import-export enterprises.

It will also make recommendations to the city and the nation’s Ministry of Industry and Trade on the implementation of programmes encouraging the use of energy-saving equipment and vehicles.

The municipal People's Committee told the Department of Construction to examine the city's building material development planning to assure it is in line with the country's master plans for developing eco-friendly building materials by 2020.

The department will also aim to keep a close watch on technical standards for saving energy on new construction, upgrades to large buildings, and equipment and materials in the buildings.

The city will also inspect mineral exploitation and processing activities to ensure they comply with legal regulations on environmental protection.
