Total Energy Consumption
Overall per capita energy consumption is around 0.5 toe. Per capita electricity consumption is approximately 318 kWh (2019).
Total energy consumption decreased until 2017 to 14.7 Mtoe since a peak in 2014 (17.4 Mtoe) because of the recession. In 2018 and 2019 it increased slightly to 15.4 Mtoe and 15.6 Mtoe respectively. Before, it increased by 10%/year between 2006 and 2014, driven by the demand from households and services.

Crude Oil Production
Oil production has decreased by 25% since 2015 (of which 6% in 2016), from 89.5 Mt to 67 Mt in 2019. It has increased very rapidly since 2000, reaching its peak level of 96 Mt in 2008 (multiplied by a factor of 2.6) and fluctuated around 80-90 Mt until 2015. The state of emergency imposed by Covid-19 led to the suspension of drilling activities and substantial limitations on production activities in general: oil production declined by 15% in 2020 with over 61% of the total oil production coming from deep water projects (20% from ultra-deep water and 17% from shallow waters).

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
In 2015, Angola submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) with the commitment to reduce its GHG emissions by up to 35% by 2030 as compared to a BAU scenario. Under a conditional mitigation scenario, the country could further reduce its emissions trajectory by 50% below the BAU scenario. Identified mitigation actions focus mainly on the development of renewables for electricity generation and on reforestation. Angola has not yet ratified the Paris Agreement.
