EVN predicts rise of power consumption in Vietnam
Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) has predicted that the average power consumption will rise in Vietnam.
It forecasts that the consumption will grow 6.4% to 793.8 million kWh per day in July.
This comes as heat waves are expected to hit the northern and central regions, a local report stated. Electricity demand rose strongly in June as all three regions in the country were hit by heatwaves.
To address the issue, EVN has planned to "continue with measures to ensure electricity supply for socio-economic development and people’s daily life, while ensuring safety of the electricity system and gradually removing its financial difficulties."
