Total Energy Consumption
The country's total energy consumption per capita reached 0.15 toe in 2019, including 62 kWh of electricity. It is the second lowest energy consumption per capita in West Africa, behind Guinea Bissau, and the tenth lowest in the world.
Since 2013, total consumption has increased by 3.3%/year. Previously, it rose by almost 20%/year between 2011 and 2013.

Crude Oil Production
Oil production started in 2011. Since 2013, oil production is between 0.7 Mt/year and 0.9 Mt/year.
CNPC processes its crude oil production at the 20 000 bbl/d Soraz refinery, commissioned in 2011, which supplies most of the domestic needs in refined oil product (88%) with a production of 0.8 Mt in 2019.

Renewable in % Electricity Production
According to the country's National Renewable Energy Action Plan (2015), renewables (including hydro) should account for 51% the installed capacity by 2020 and 58% by 2030 (5% in 2019).
Moreover, 11% of Nigerian households should have access to improved cookstoves by 2020 and 20% by 2030. In addition, the penetration rate of butane is expected to reach 8% in 2020 and 11% in 2030. Finally, the share of biodiesel in gasoil and DDO should reach 1% in 2020 and 5% in 2030.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
In 2015, Niger submitted its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to UNFCCC. The target is to reduce its GHG emissions by 3.5% by 2030 compared to a BAU projection; with external support, the target could be raised to 34.6% in 2030 (conditional target).
Since 2006, CO2 emissions from energy combustion have increased by 10.3%/year on average to reach 2.4 MtCO2 (x 6 compared to 1990).
