Institutions & Energy Policy
The Ministry of Energy and Water is responsible for energy policy, general organisation of the sector, the study and implementation of hydroelectric projects and regulation of the energy sector.
The Ministry of Economy and Finance supervises the National Office of Oil Products (ONAP).
EDM-SA (State 66%, IPS-Industrial Promotion Services 34%) is the national electricity company. It was created following the privatisation of EDM (Energie du Mali) in 2000. Initially the State had kept just 40%, with Bouygues (39%) and IPS (21%) holding the remainder, but following disputes with the State, Bouygues pulled out of the company in 2005.
All the oil products consumed in the country are imported, mainly from Senegal, Ivory Coast, and Niger.
Prices are subsidised for all categories of consumers (average price of FCFA 96.5/kWh (US$16.5c/kWh) and subsidy of FCFA 31.6/kWh (US$5.4c/kWh)) to cover the average cost of FCFA 128/kWh (US$22c/kWh) in 2017. The amount of subsidies was estimated in 2015 at FCFA 42bn (US$71m), of which 41% for the social tariff, 27% for the normal tariff and 32% for the medium voltage (industry).
Energy consumption per capita is low, at about 0.27 toe/capita, including 180 kWh of electricity (2018).
In 2018, energy consumption was dominated by biomass, which represented 66% of the total energy consumption, followed by oil with 30% and hydroelectricity and power imports with 4%.
Issues & Prospects
Several companies are active in the oil exploration sector, and especially in the Taoudenni basin, the most promising basin in Mali: Sipex (subsidiary of Sonatrach); a joint venture between Afex Global and Glencore; and a joint venture between Heritage Oil and Mali Oil Development.
