SBVN Net Zero - Pilot Zero Energy Building

Supporting investors to achieve the first-of-its-kind Net Zero Energy Building in Vietnam.

About SBVN Net Zero - Pilot Zero Energy Building

The first Zero Energy Building project for Vietnam.

Zero Energy Building (ZEB) projects, aiming to achieve energy balance and generate on-site energy to meet annual consumption needs, are on the rise and a sought-after goal for various building projects globally. The first Zero Energy Building (ZEB) project with energy balance will be an important milestone not only for investors pursuing sustainable values, but also for Vietnam’s progress towards Net Zero 2050.

SBVN is dedicated to offering the most efficient technical support and financial solutions for Zero Energy Building (ZEB) projects in Vietnam.

Frequently Asked Questions

Detailed information about the SBVN Net Zero Pilot Project program

A Zero Energy Building (ZEB) optimizes energy consumption and incorporates renewable energy to generate ample energy, fully compensating for its annual energy consumption from the grid.

At present, there are no comprehensive statistical figures to assess the cost difference between zero energy buildings and conventional buildings. Preliminary surveys have shown that costs can increase significantly. However, there are instances in countries like China, India, Singapore, etc., with climate conditions similar to Vietnam, where total investment in similar projects has remained unchanged or even decreased.

The technical expert team at SBVN will carefully assess and analyze individual technical proposals for the entire building, with the goal of optimizing investment costs for Zero Energy Buildings (ZEB).

Projects that have participated in the SBVN Net Zero – Enhancing the efficiency of construction investment program are eligible to register for the SBVN Net Zero – Zero Energy Building model project if they meet the prerequisite selection criteria.

Mr. Tran Thanh Vu, supported by energy-efficient construction engineers and technical partners, will provide technical consultation services to investors.

Arch., Msc. Tran Thanh Vu’s comprehensive knowledge comes from years of study, extensive research, and work in France, with a focus on applying technical simulation to architectural design (thermal, acoustics, lighting…). He is also an expert consultant known for his involvement in implementing 11 energy-efficient projects in Vietnam, collaborating with programs by UNDP, USAID, and IFC-World Bank. With a background of more than 10 years in researching and applying energy-saving solutions, Mr. Vu understands that employing modern tools is merely the initial factor; what truly matters is having abundant technical expertise and innovative thinking to propose the most effective solutions.

To register for the ZEB pilot project, kindly furnish the following information for the program:

  1. Please provide general information regarding the project, including location, total gross floor area (GFA), current stage, and other relevant details.
  2. Design documentation: conceptual design, architectural design… For projects in the stage from basic design to technical design, please provide the MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) design, detailed technical explanations, and a comprehensive list of materials/equipment planned for use.
