Compared to other developing countries with a similar development level, Algeria's consumption is high (1.3 toe per capita), partly because of consumption and losses in the energy sector (oil & gas production and LNG plants, mainly). Electricity consumption per capita reaches 1 500 kWh (2020).
Issues & Prospects
CREG forecasts an increase of peak demand from around 14 GW in 2018 to a range of 21 to 28 GW in 2028 and production between 102 and 140 TWh. Taking into account the capacities to be retired, the additional capacity to be installed by 2028 amounts to 22.2 GW, of which 10.8 GW are under implementation.
