Renewable in % Electricity Production

AER ("Agence des Energies Renouvelables") is the national agency in charge of renewables.

The National Action Plan for Renewable Energies PANER (2015-2030) aims to raise the share of grid-connected renewable energies in the installed capacity to 58% by 2030, with 1416 MW of renewable capacity (including medium and large hydropower and 528 MW of solar).

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions

In 2016, Mali ratified its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to UNFCCC. 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 around 85 MtCO2eq i.e.-27% (-29% for agriculture, -31% for energy, and -21% for LULUCF).

Since 2000, energy-related CO2 emissions have more than tripled (+6.9%/year) to nearly 5 Mt in 2018.
