Total Energy Consumption

Energy consumption per inhabitant was around 0.42 toe in 2018, including 260 kWh of electricity.

The total energy consumption has increased rapidly since 2011 (3.3%/year).

Biomass (wood, charcoal, and agricultural waste) represents 60% of total consumption, oil 23%, and gas 16%.

After the 2010-2011 post-electoral crisis, the country's electricity consumption has increased strongly (7.5%/year between 2011 and 2017) with the economic recovery and the commissioning of new production capacities.

Crude Oil Production

After a 68% decrease between 2006 and 2014, oil production rose by 100% between 2014 and 2017, to reach 2 Mt. In 2018, crude oil output decreased by 5% to 1.9 Mt.

Three offshore oil fields are in production: Baobab, Lion and Espoir.

The Baobab field was set into production in 2005, but does not currently produce at full capacity. It produced 50 000 bbl/d in 2016.

With a capacity of 84 000 bbl/d, Ivory Coast's refining capacity is much higher than that of its neighbouring countries. The country exports around 40% of the oil products it produces.

Renewable in % Electricity Production

In its National Renewable Energies Action Plan, the country seeks to reach a 42% share of renewables in the electricity mix by 2020, including 26% of hydro. By 2030, Ivory Coast plans to have a renewable capacity of almost 3.3 GW.

There are currently no feed-in tariffs. The power purchase agreements are signed between the government and the promoter after negotiations and following a call for tenders or after detailed feasibility studies under an MoU.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions

In its NDC, Ivory Coast set the target to reduce its GHG emissions by 28% in 2030 compared to a BAU level under certain conditions (private and international financing to support domestic investments and technology transfers).

CO2 emissions from energy combustion increased by more than 68% between 2010 and 2018. This is partly due to thermal power generation.
