Total Energy consumption

Energy consumption per capita stands at 0.8 toe, including 1 600 kWh of electricity (2015).

The country's overall consumption increased very rapidly between 2000 and 2007 (by an average of 8.3%/year); growth has been much slower since then (1.7%/year on average between 2007 and 2015)....

Crude oil production

Oil production has remained roughly stable between 2008 and 2014 (around 34 Mt) and has slightly decline since then (31 Mt in 2015). Previously, it decreased by 33% between a peak of 47.5 Mt in 1993 and 2006 to 32 Mt. Egypt is a net exporter of crude oil (net exports of around 6.7 Mt in 2015)....

Oil products consumption

The consumption of oil products has increased strongly between 2003 and 2012 (6.6%/year to 36 Mt) and decreasing since then (30 Mt in 2015). The largest share of the consumption is absorbed by the transport sector (40%), followed by the power and industry sectors (18% and 19%, respectively) and...

Natural gas consumption

Gas consumption increased strongly from 2000 to 2013 (almost 9%/year) and it is rather steady since then and stood at around 50 bcm in 2015. That rapid trend was mainly driven by industry and electricity production. More than 60% of the gas is used for the generation of electricity, and about...

Coal consumption

Coal consumption was low and rather stable until 2014. Following the approval by the government of the industrial use of coal in 2014has, coal imports were multiplied by three in 2015. Coal is primarily consumed by industry (93%).

Power consumption

Electricity consumption increased very rapidly between 2000 and 2012 (7%/year, on average) and has only slightly increased since then by 1.4%/year. Households absorb 47% of that consumption, followed by industry (28%) and the tertiary sector (20%) (2015).


Renewable in % electricity production

NREA, New & Renewable Energy Authority, was created in 1986 under the supervision of MERE to promote renewables, in particular solar, wind and biomass.

Egypt enacted the Renewable Energy Law in 2014, which establishes different schemes for the private...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

Egypt submitted its INDC during the COP21 in Paris. To achieve high mitigation levels, Egypt plans to phase out energy subsidies within three or five years and, potentially, to create a national carbon market. Egypt also aims to use renewable and nuclear power sources. The initial total...
