Total Energy Consumption
Energy consumption per inhabitant was around 0.41 toe in 2020 (-15% since 2013), which is higher than in Senegal (0.27 toe) and Ghana (0.39 toe), but lower than in Nigeria (0.79 toe). Per capita electricity consumption has increased by 27% since 2013 to 291 kWh, which is higher than in Nigeria (140 kWh) and Senegal (275 kWh), but much lower than in Ghana (485 kWh).
Total energy consumption increased rapidly from 2011 to 2014 (around 7%/year). Since 2015, the progression has been slower (2.2%/year).

Crude Oil Production
In 2020, crude oil production dropped to 1.5 Mt (-17%). Previously, it had been growing very rapidly (14%/year), to reach 1.8 Mt in 2019. Most of Ivory Coast's oil is produced from the CI-40 block (Baobab) with 21 kb/d in 2020 (-21%, 72% of total output). The drastic decrease in the Baobab field was due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the depletion of the field.

Renewable in % Electricity Production
According to its updated NDC (2021), the country seeks to reach a 45% share of renewables in the electricity mix (37% in 2020, all from hydro).
There are currently no feed-in tariffs. The power purchase agreements are signed between the government and the promoter after a call for tenders or detailed feasibility studies under an MoU.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
In its updated NDC (October 2021), the GHG emission reduction target was raised from 28% to 30% in 2030, compared to a BAU scenario. The objective corresponds to a reduction of around 37 MtCO2eq in 2030 (compared to 9 MtCO2eq in the first NDC). Reduction efforts will focus on reforestation, phasing-out coal generation, and improving energy efficiency in buildings.
Since 2012, CO2 emissions from energy combustion increased by almost 4%/year. This is partly due to thermal power generation.
