Total Energy Consumption
Energy consumption per inhabitant was around 0.41 toe in 2019 (-15% since 2013), which is higher than in Senegal (0.29 toe) and Ghana (0.35 toe), but lower than in Nigeria (0.78 toe). Per capita electricity consumption increased by 25% since 2013 to 280 kWh, which is higher than in Nigeria (140 kWh) and Senegal (270 kWh), but much lower than in Ghana (460 kWh).
Total energy consumption has increased rapidly since 2011 (3%/year).

Crude Oil Production
Since 2014, oil production has grown very rapidly (16%/year) to reach 1.9 Mt in 2019. Most of Ivory Coast's oil is produced from the CI-40 block (Baobab) with 26 kb/d in 2019 (+21%, 73% of total output). Previously, oil production decreased on average by 14%/year between 2006 and 2014. The country is a net importer of crude oil with a trade deficit of 2.2 Mt (2019). Since 2016, oil imports increased on average by 11%/year to 4 Mt in 2019. Oil is mostly imported from Nigeria (89% in 2019).

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 2030 (33% in 2019, only hydro), 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 call for tenders or 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).
Since 2012, CO2 emissions from energy combustion increased by almost 8%/year. This is partly due to thermal power generation.
