Vietnam to reduce thermal power production

Vietnam targets reducing coal-fired power production by 6 percent this year to prioritize solar and wind energy even as it grapples with limited transmission capacity. -

This means a cut of 8 billion kilowatt-hours from a projected 126 billion kilowatt hours of coal-fired power this year. National utility Vietnam Electricity (EVN) estimates total production from all sources at 260 billion kilowatt-hours.

Tran Dinh Long, deputy chairman of the Vietnam Electrical Engineering Association (VEEA), said that the boom in solar power in recent years show lack of anticipation on the burden they would place on the national grid.
