Total Energy Consumption
Consumption per capita is much lower than the EU average, at approximately 0.8 toe (73% below the EU average), including nearly 2 400 kWh of electricity (57% below the EU average) (2019).
Total energy consumption has been slightly decreasing since 2017 to 2.3 Mtoe in 2019, after a rapid growth between 1995 and 2005 (+5%/year) and a slower growth until 2017 (+0.7%/year).

Crude Oil Production
Oil production has fallen by 27% since 2014 from 1.4 Mt to 1 Mt in 2019, due to low international prices that cut investments in the sector. Most of this production is exported (65% in 2019). Production tripled between 2004 and 2014.

Renewable in % Electricity Production
Albania adopted its National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) in 2016 (2015-2020) and revised it in 2018 (2018-2020). It set a target of 38% of renewables in final energy consumption in 2020; in 2018, renewables accounted for 34.9% of the energy mix. The 2018-2030 energy strategy aims to raise the share of renewables in primary consumption to 42% in 2030.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
In its first NDC, Albania committed to reduce GHG emissions by 11.5% in 2030 compared to a baseline scenario, corresponding to a 708 kt reduction in 2030.
CO2 emissions from fuel combustion have been fluctuating around 4 MtCO2 since 2004 and reached 4.2 MtCO2 in 2019. Emissions, which had collapsed between 1990 and 1997, increased by 15%/year from 1998 to 2004.
