According to the Vietnam Electricity Group (EVN), the National Hydrology Meteorology Forecast Center said that terrible hot air mass hit the northern and north- central provinces from Thanh Hoa to Phu Yen with its peak temperature at 35- 38 degrees Celsius, even up to over 39 degrees Celsius, resulting in increasing high  energy demand.

Therefore, EVN called on people and companies to save power via turning off unnecessary electronic devices at 9:30am – 11:30 am, and at 5:00 pm- 8pm. 

The Electricity of Vietnam also reported that the highest electricity consumption of Vietnam’ energy system reached 20,835 MW, and the highest electricity consumption during one day reached at more than 429 kWh. However, the agency said it is able to ensure safe and stable power supply during the dry season.
