- Regarding the progress of power source projects in the VIII Power Planning and Plan:

Focus on directing the selection of investors and quick implementation of power source projects in the VIII Power Planning and Plan, ensuring timely addition of new power sources to meet the annual load growth demand. Particularly, pay attention to urgently reporting to authorized levels for consideration and strict handling in accordance with the provisions of the law for the Cong Thanh and Nam Dinh 1 thermal power plants before July 1, 2024, to ensure the objectives of the VIII Power Planning and electricity supply for the northern region.

Specifically, focus on implementation of the 500 kV transmission line project from Quang Trach to Pho Noi at the quickest, ensuring the completion of steel tower construction before May 31, 2024, and the installation and operation before June 30, 2024. Strive to complete the transmission projects to serve electricity imports from Laos in May 2024, such as the Dak Ooc Substation and the 200 kV transmission line Nam Sum - Nong Cong.

- Direct the power plants under the management of the Electricity of Vietnam Group to prepare for production and ensure the maximum mobilization of electricity generation capacity during the peak months of 2024. Absolutely prevent fuel shortages (coal, gas, and oil) for thermal power plants and water shortages for hydroelectric reservoirs according to the approved procedures.

- Actively and proactively engage in electricity trading, especially renewable energy, following market rules and the spirit of balanced interests and risk sharing, to avoid wasting social resources.
