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.
Mali has no proven fossil fuel reserves and is entirely dependent on imports. The hydroelectric potential of the country is estimated at 1 150 MW. Forests cover 300 000 km2, 33 000 km2 of which are listed (25% of the surface area of Mali).
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. However, the variations in international oil prices are not entirely reflected in motor fuel prices. A floating Tax on Petroleum Product Imports (TIPP) applies.
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%.
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.
