  • 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).

  • Energy Companies


    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.

  • Energy Supply


    All the oil products consumed in the country are imported, mainly from Senegal, Ivory Coast, and Niger.

  • Energy Prices


    Oil product prices have been controlled since 2001 because of hikes in international prices; they are revised on a monthly basis according to international prices. A floating Tax on Petroleum Product Imports (TIPP) applies. However, the rise in oil prices, as well as the recent decrease, is not entirely reflected in motor fuel prices.

  • Energy Consumption

    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


    The country foresees a strong increase in demand, mainly due to an extension of the electricity distribution network and an increase in the agro-industrial demand. Political unrest in the country since 2012 has led to some delays in the commissioning of several power projects. Currently, Mali is building two gas power plants (total of 177 MW) and is planning to add more than 1800 MW.
