Vietnam to Import More Energy from Laos

Vietnam has decided to import an additional 200 MW of electricity from Laos next year amid possible power shortages.

The country’s decision comes amid concerns that it may suffer energy shortages from 2020.

Vietnam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade estimated that the country would experience a shortage of 3.7 billion kWh in 2021, which will reach its peak of 15 billion kWh in 2023 before halving each year and falling to 3.5 billion kWh in 2025.
