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).
About 30% of the supply is provided by 3 subsidiaries of multinational companies (Total - with over 60 service stations, Exxon-Mobil and Shell) that are gathered in the GPP ("Groupement des Professionnels du Pétrole"). Malian companies supply the rest of the market and are gathered in GMPP ("Groupement Malien des Professionnels du Pétrole").
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 0.28 toe/capita, including 160 kWh of electricity (2019).
Energy consumption is still dominated by biomass, which represented 65% of the total energy consumption in 2019 despite a declining share (73% in 2010). It is followed by oil with 32% and hydroelectricity and power imports with 2%.
