Central Highland provinces enhance development of renewable energy
In recent years, Central Highland provinces, mainly Dak Lak and Gia Lai, have attracted a number of domestic and foreign investors to survey and invest in solar and wind power. So far, many projects have been implemented and put into operation, significantly contributing to ensuring national energy security and promoting socio-economic development in the localities.
However, experts have recommended the control of the ‘hot’ development of the clean energy resources as the power transmission and connection system has not kept up, leading to overload of the power transmission system. In addition, the Central Highlands are also vulnerable to thunderstorms and whirlwinds, so the construction of renewable energy plants requires the participation of professional enterprises to ensure proper techniques and to reduce damages caused by natural disasters.
