Total Energy Consumption
Energy consumption per capita is low, at about 0.28 toe/capita, including 160 kWh of electricity (2019).
Energy consumption is still dominated by biomass, which represented 65% of the total energy consumption in 2019 despite a declining share (73% in 2010). It is followed by oil with 32% and hydroelectricity and power imports with 2%.

AER ("Agence des Energies Renouvelables") is the national agency in charge of renewables.
ANADEB, National Agency for the Development of Biofuels, coordinates the policies and actions for the promotion of biofuels.
The National Action Plan for Renewable Energies PANER (2015-2030) aims to raise the share of grid-connected renewables in the installed capacity to 58% by 2030, with 1416 MW of renewables (including medium and large hydropower and 528 MW of solar).

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
In 2016, Mali ratified its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). Its unconditional target is to reduce its GHG emissions compared to a BAU scenario by 13 MtCO2eq in 2030 (national financing of US$5.2bn). The conditional target - if the country receives nearly US$30bn in financing by 2030 - is to reduce these emissions by around 85 MtCO2eq i.e. 27% (-29% for agriculture, -31% for energy, and -21% for LULUCF).
Since 2005, energy-related CO2 emissions have more than tripled (~10%/year) to 6 Mt in 2019.
