In the past few days, floods have continuously raged, causing increasing damages in the South Central provinces. And yet, many hydropower plants in the upstream of large rivers have also ceaselessly discharged water, creating double floods, affecting tens of thousands of households. Thereby, it shows that there are still many shortcomings in the operation and management of hydropower reservoirs.
The office of the National Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control confirmed 18 people have been found dead from December 1 because of flooding in the South Central and Central Highlands.
Competitive electricity generation market program will be fully operated from January 1 next year, opening chances for more businesses to invest in the field and offer competitive, reasonable and practical wholesale prices.
