  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Infrastructures and Energy supervises the energy sector.

    The National Agency of Natural Resources (AKBN) is in charge of implementing the energy policy and regulating the hydrocarbon sector and mining activities.

    An Energy Regulatory Entity (ERE), in charge of regulating the energy market and electricity prices, was set up in 1995.

    In 2018, ...

  • Energy Companies


    Albgaz owns all gas infrastructures (10 km of operational gas pipelines and 500 km of idled ones). The company was spun off from Albpetrol in 2017 to take over Albpetrol's gas activities and was certified as the gas transmission and distribution system operator.

  • Energy Supply


    Albania has an estimated hydro potential of 12 TWh. Likewise, the country has a significant potential of other renewable sources (13 TWh/year of biomass power generation, 11 TWh/year of wind and 33 MW of solar). It has limited oil reserves (33 Mt in 2018), but significant lignite reserves (522 Mt), although its sulphur content is high (over 3%).

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices for households have remained stable since 2011 at €11.5c/kWh, widening the gap with the EU average (from 35% in 2011 to 45% in 2018).


  • Energy Consumption

    Consumption per capita is much lower than the EU average, at approximately 0.8 toe (74% below the EU average), including around 2 200 kWh of electricity (60% below the EU average) (2018).

    Total energy consumption has grown slowly since 2004 (+0.6%/year), reaching 2.4 Mtoe in 2017 (stable in 2018). It soared between 1995 and 2004 (+5.6%/year).
