The Vietnamese government has asked the Ministry of Industry and Trade to complete the 2021-2030 energy development plan and submit it by mid-June this year.
It has also tasked the ministry with evaluating more carefully the capability of the national grid to prevent the problem of energy oversupply and make needed changes to the proposed Power Development Master Plan VIII.
One example is that the plan proposes to have 167,000 megawatts of generation capacity nationwide by 2030 while maximum demand is projected at 86,500 megawatts, it said.
