  • Côte d'Ivoire aims for renewables to represent 45% of the power mix in 2030.
  • The updated NDC increased the GHG emissions reduction target to 30% by 2030 relative to a BAU scenario.
  • Eranove, through CIE and CIPREL, dominates power generation with a share of 43%.
  • Around 80% of natural gas is produced by Foxtrot, while CNR accounts for around 90% of crude oil output.
  • Since 2011, power generation increased by 7%/year, with a rising share of gas.
  • Oil production rebounded by 6% in 2022, after declining by 18%/year between 2019 and 2021.
  • Côte d'Ivoire is a net exporter of electricity and oil products.
  • Diesel and electricity prices remain subsidised.
  • Energy prices are lower than in Senegal but tend to be higher than in Ghana and, especially, Nigeria.
  • Biomass continues to dominate Côte d'Ivoire's energy mix (56%).
  • Power demand is growing rapidly, driven by a strong increase in the electrification rate over the last decade.
  • Eni is expected to start the second phase of its Baleine oil & gas project by end-2024.
  • A 390 MW CCGT and a 112 MW hydropower plant are due to be commissioned in 2024.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Mines, Petroleum, and Energy is responsible for the implementation and monitoring of the energy policy through two directorates (hydrocarbons and energy). It oversees the state-owned energy companies.

    The Ministry of Environment, Sustainable Development and Ecological Transition is in charge of climate policy and renewables.

  • Energy Companies


    Foxtrot (an affiliate of Bouygues) operates the CI-27 block (Foxtrot), which accounts for 83% of the country's natural gas output. The company holds a 24% participating interest in the block, alongside Petroci (40%), Seci (24%), and Enerci (12%).

    The other gas producers are CNR (10% of total gas output) and Petroci (4%).

  • Energy Supply


    In 2022, crude oil and NGL output increased by 6% to 1.3 Mt, driven up by higher production at blocks CI-11 (+51%), CI-26 (+22%) and C-27 (+13%), after declining by 18%/year between 2019 and 2021. Most of the country's oil remains extracted from Block CI-40, accounting for 71% of the total, followed by Block C-16 (22% of the total).

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity tariffs are set by the government. There are 7 different electricity plans, including a social tariff, ranging from around XOF21/kWh (US$3.5c/kWh) to more than XOF122/kWh (US$20c/kWh). In 2019, the government lowered the social tariff by 20%.

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita was around 0.43 toe in 2022, which is higher than in Senegal (0.30 toe) and Ghana (0.39 toe), but lower than in Nigeria (0.77 toe). Per capita electricity consumption reached 340 kWh in 2022, which is higher than in Nigeria (120 kWh) but lower than in Senegal (360 kWh) and Ghana (560 kWh).

  • Issues & Prospects


    According to ANARE (2021), the country's installed capacity is expected to reach 5.4 GW in 2030, with 3.2 GW of thermal (59%), 1.5 GW of hydro (28%), 0.37 GW of solar (7%), and 0.31 GW of biomass (6%). Over the 2023-2025 period, 1,4 GW of new capacity are expected to be commissioned, according to ANARE (2022), including 57% of thermal, 29% of solar and 14% of hydro.
