Total Energy consumption

Consumption per capita is much lower than the EU average, at approximately 0.8 toe (75% below the EU average), including less than 2 100 kWh of electricity (63% below the EU average) (2016).

Total energy consumption soared between 1995 and 2004 (+5.6%/year) and has grown at a much slower pace since then (+0.4%/year between 2004 and 2016), reaching 2.3 Mtoe in 2016 (+4.4% in 2016 ...

Crude oil production

Oil production tripled between 2004 and 2014, reaching 1.4 Mt in 2014. However, low international prices cut investments in the sector and crude oil production has fallen by 23% since then to 1.1 Mt in 2016. 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 their production is insufficient to ...

Renewable in % electricity production

Albania adopted its first National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) in January 2016. It confirmed the target of 38% of renewables in final energy consumption in 2020 (from 31% in 2009), initially adopted in 2009 (at least 29% in the energy sector, 3% in transport and 10% in heating and cooling).

A new law on renewables was adopted in February 2017 (the previous law adopted in 2013 ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), 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 rose by 16%/year from 1998 to 2004. They have remained relatively stable at around 4 MtCO2 since then, despite a 15% drop in 2012 (end of thermal power ...
