Utilising hydropower resources for socio-economic growth

To accomplish socio-economic development objectives in Vietnam, building integrated reservoirs, combining hydroelectricity and irrigation is given priority for development. An insight on the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry website.

Vietnam has more than 3,450 river and stream systems of different sizes theoretically capable of generating electricity with a total potential production capacity of 35,000 MW and 300 billion kWh of electricity a year. The northern region accounts for some 60 percent, the central some 27 percent, and the southern 13 percent. However, with feasibility taken into account, the country can utilise about 26,000 MW or 100 billion kWh of electricity a year.
