Total Energy Consumption
Overall per capita energy consumption is around 0.4 toe. Per capita electricity consumption is approximately 425 kWh (2020).
Total energy consumption decreased rapidly from 2014 to 2017 (-9%/year) to 13 Mtoe because of the recession. In 2018, it increased slightly to 15 Mtoe. In 2020, it decreased by 6% to 14 Mtoe, mainly due to the COVID crisis. Previously, it had increased by 10%/year between 2006 and 2014, driven by the demand from households and services.

Crude Oil Production
Oil production has decreased by 32% since 2015, from 89.4 Mt to 60.7 Mt in 2020. It increased very rapidly as from 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 8% in 2020.

Renewable in % Electricity Production
The National Development Plan (PND) 2018-2022 set the target to add 500 MW of renewables (mainly solar) by 2022 and the "Angola 2025" strategy targets 800 MW by 2025.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
In 2021, Angola submitted its first NDC with a target to reduce its GHG emissions by up to 15% in 2025 and 21% in 2030 as compared to a BAU scenario. Under a conditional mitigation scenario, the country could further reduce its emissions trajectory by 25% and 36% below the BAU scenario in 2025 and 2030, respectively. Identified mitigation actions focus mainly on the development of renewables for electricity generation and on reducing gas flaring. Angola ratified the Paris Agreement in 2020.
