Total Energy Consumption
Per capita consumption is 1.4toe/cap, including 2 775 kWh of electricity (2018).
Total energy consumption increased rapidly between 2010 and 2017 (around 5%/year), but decreased by 5% in 2018, bringing it to 8.6 Mtoe. It increased rapidly in 2008 and 2009, because of a significant price increase in Syria rendering illegal imports unattractive.
