The Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) pledged that it will provide enough electricity in May to meet demand, potentially reaching as high as 463 million kilowatt hours each day.

The company said that it will focus on maximising the capacity of coal-fuelled and gas-fuelled turbines in order to supply adequate electricity, especially for the south-central provinces which are being hit by severe drought.

According to the EVN, in the first four months this year, all power plants produced 49.25 billion kilowatt hours, of which commercial electricity comprises 42.8 billion kilowatt hours, up 11.13 percent against the same period last year.-VNA
