Total Energy consumption

Consumption per capita is much lower than the EU average, at approximately 0.8 toe (75% below the EU average), including around 2 100 kWh of electricity (62% below the EU average) (2017).

Total energy consumption soared between 1995 and 2004 (+5.6%/year) and has grown at a much slower pace since then (+0.5%/year between 2004 and 2017), reaching 2.3 Mtoe in 2017 (+2.2% in 2017 ...

Crude oil production

After tripling between 2004 and 2014 to 1.4 Mt, oil production has fallen by 30% since then to 1 Mt in 2017, due to low international prices that cut investments in the sector. Most of this production is exported.

The two refineries located in Ballshi (17 800 bbl/d) and Fier (8 500 bbl/d) need to be modernised and only run at around 1/3 of their capacity (0.3 Mt in 2017). The Ballshi ...

Renewable in % electricity production

Albania adopted its first National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) in 2016. It set a target of 38% of renewables in final energy consumption in 2020 (31% in 2009) (29% for power, 3% in transport and 10% for heating and cooling). The 2018-2030 energy strategy aims to raise the share of renewables in primary consumption to 42% in 2030.

A new law on renewables was adopted in 2017. ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and in its 2018-2030 energy strategy, Albania committed to reduce GHG emissions by 11.5% compared to a baseline scenario between 2016 and 2030, corresponding to a 708 kt reduction in 2030.

CO2 emissions from fuel combustion have remained relatively stable at around 4 MtCO2 since 2004; they rose by 15%/year from 1998 to 2004.
