Crude Oil Production
The country's only refinery ceased operating in 2005. Since then, oil products consumption is entirely based on imports. In 2017, oil product imports rose to 2.7 Mt, almost three times the 2000 volume.

Renewable in % Electricity Production
The National Development Plan (2014-2030) sets a target of 60% of renewables in total energy consumption by 2030. In order to achieve this objective, the country is planning to create a law authorizing private investment in renewable energy. This law, that will be voted in March 2020, will allow IPPs to sell renewable electricity directly to companies or electricity distributors. Through this law, ANDE will have to bid to buy this electricity.
