Hydroelectricity reservoir management facing challenge due to unexpected weather

Based on weather forecasts of the National Centre for Hydro - Meteorological Forecasting (NCHMF), Vietnam Disaster Management Authority requests that hydropower plants in the Northern region urgently discharge excess water prior to the rainy season. However, Vietnam Electricity (EVN) concerns that over-discharging of water or imprecise weather forecast might lead to water shortage to harness power in the context that international fossil fuel prices are exceptionally high.
