Total Energy Consumption
Energy consumption per capita is 0.4 toe, including around 90 kWh of electricity (2018).
Total consumption has increased by 2%/year since 2012.
Biomass covers approximately 95% of the country's energy needs. Although it has a large surplus of firewood, the eastern part of the country, which is more populated, is subject to fast deforestation, just like the periphery of the cities.

Crude Oil Production
Oil production increased by 34% between 2016 and 2018 to 1.3 Mt. It had previously been declining by 3%/year as from 2004.
Since the closure of the SOCIR refinery in 2001, all the crude oil production is exported.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
In its NDC, the country is committed to reducing its GHG emissions by 17% by 2030 compared to a BaU projection (-70 Mteq CO2). The total investment required to meet this objective is estimated at US$12.5 bn.
CO2 emissions from energy combustion increased by around 11%/year between 2001 and 2014 (to 2.8 MtCO2). More than 90% of total CO2 emissions are due to transport. The fall in oil consumption between 2014 and 2018 led to a 22% drop in CO2 emissions to 2.1 MtCO2.
