Issues in Vietnam’s Green Buildings | Schneider Electric | Xavier Denoly

Xavier Denoly remarks that low electricity price in Vietnam is one of the issues hindering the growth of its green buildings industry. There is also a propensity from foreign players in the country to opt LEED over LOTUS (the local certification developed by VGBC) due to considerable reasons. To improve the industry, Vietnam needs to learn about different approaches applied by its neighboring countries and supports gained from relevant stakeholders, including Schneider Electric.

Xavier Denoly is the Country President for Vietnam and Cambodia at Schneider Electric who is based in Ho Chi Minh. Xavier takes responsibility for both Vietnamese and Cambodian markets with four offices in Ho Chi Minh City, Danang, Hanoi and Phnom Penh. Xavier was also a panelist in Asia Green Buildings Breakfast Meeting hosted by Solidiance in partnership with VGBC in April 2013.
