According to Huynh Kim Stripping - Director of ECC-HCMC - one of the very few units leading and most experienced in the field of energy efficiency in Vietnam, the quality of the report is determined by KTNL second factor is the level of auditors and test equipment. Stripping Huynh Kim said "the level of different auditors for the reporting KTNL different quality is nothing to talk about. The same survey a factory but auditors A business consultant should replace lighting systems, security auditors B should improve cooling system, saying auditors C need replacing steam system ... An audit Techies do not just see the overall energy savings potential in parts of the plant, the stage of the chain or the operating devices in the enterprise, but also give specific numbers that businesses would save if done according to the results of the auditor's advice".

Indeed, in today's market there are many units with active advisory role in terms of angles KTNL but the real effect of this work, the business owner should consider before selecting a unit advice. Advice from the experts in this case is that businesses should look at record capacity of the unit to coordinate consultation before implementation KTNL.

For those of practical value from the particular KTNL and solutions for saving energy in general, the Law on Energy saving and efficiency is not only mandated by law enforcement businesses to make secure energy targets and efficiency savings for the country but also an opportunity for businesses to improve production systems, improving management processes, thereby contributing to increased business efficiency.
