Institutions & Energy Policy
The Ministry of Energy and Water (MEW) supervises the electricity sector and, since 2000, also oversees the oil sector.
The Council of Development and Reconstruction (CDR) is a planning agency that coordinates the development of major projects. It was initially created to coordinate the reconstruction of the country after the civil war (1975-1990).
Electricity of Lebanon (EDL) is the national electricity company.
Lebanon imports all its oil products (8 Mt in 2019, i.e., a 3.7%/year increase since 2000). In 2019, the country imported oil products from Greece (31%), Russia (28%), and United States (26%).
Lebanon does not have refining capacity. The country's two refineries (Tripoli in the north and Zahrani in the south) were both closed in 2005.
The price of electricity is approved by the Ministry of Energy and Water, according to EDL's recommendations. End-consumer tariffs have not been revised since 1994 and stand at US$10.9c/kWh for industry and US$5.3c/kWh for households. Intermittent power supply makes price increases sensitive and unlikely.
Per capita energy consumption was 1.2 toe/cap in 2019, which is 60% lower than the regional average. Per capita electricity consumption was 2 650 kWh in 2019 (-3.9%/year since 2017), which is 35% lower than the regional average.
Issues & Prospects
Lebanon has nearly 4.7 GW of projects under development (of which 3.2 GW of thermal and 1.5 GW of renewables, mainly solar). Given the economic and political situation, their development is quite uncertain.
