  • The National Plan of Development set a solar capacity addition target of 600 MW for 2022.
  • TotalEnergies is the largest oil operator.
  • Angola is the 2nd largest oil producer in Africa.
  • Electricity production is increasing very rapidly (~12%/year), with hydropower representing around 60% of the power mix.
  • Gas flaring has been drastically reduced.
  • Gasoline and diesel prices are the second lowest in Africa after Algeria.
  • Electricity tariffs are low and do not cover production costs.
  • The country's energy consumption has been decreasing since 2015 because of the recession. Biomass still represents 47% of this consumption, but its share is declining.
  • Angola aims to reach 9.9 GW of capacity by 2025 (+4.6 GW) and a 60% electrification rate.
  • The country aims to develop several refineries to decrease its dependency on oil product imports.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Minister of Mineral Resources, Oil, and Gas (MIREMPET) is in charge of the country's oil, gas, and biofuels activities. The Ministry of Energy and Water (MINEA) manages the electricity sector.

  • Energy Supply


    Angola has an enormous gas potential, with estimated reserves of 343 bcm (end of 2020).

    Proven oil reserves are estimated at 1.1 Gt (end of 2020). The country also has an important hydroelectric economic potential, estimated at 65 TWh/year.

  • Energy Prices


    The government adopted a 14% VAT tax to replace the Consumption Tax in 2019. The adoption of this tax and a cut on subsidies on electricity led to a significant readjustment of power tariffs (+97%), to an average of AOA 12.82/kWh (US$2c/kWh).

  • Energy Consumption

    Overall per capita energy consumption is around 0.4 toe. Per capita electricity consumption is approximately 425 kWh (2020).

  • Issues & Prospects


    The Angola Energy 2025 Vision, will seek to expand the electrification rate from 36% to around 60% by 2025 and increase installed capacity from 5.4 GW to 9.9 GW, using up to 60% of hydropower. Under the Angola Energy plan for 2025, the country forecast US$23bn of investments (US$12bn in generation, US$4bn in transmission and US$7.5bn in distribution).
