Abstract: Energy demand in Vietnam rapidly increased during the last decades (1998-2008), with the industrial sector consuming up to 48 per cent of the total 32.0 Mtoe energy used. To enlarge the energy generation, VietNam government plans to install additional coal poweredplants, effectively contributing further to greenhouse gas emissions. Clean Coal Technology (CCT) could be onesolution to minimize these emissions. However, several barriers for the implementation of this technology exist. The analysis of CCT and the identification of barriers hindering the implementation in Viet Nam are an important initial step towards the diffusion of CCT. To enhance CCT adoption in Vietnam, five recommendations are proposed in this study including a supporting framework of regional and international partnerships.
