Total Energy consumption

The country's total energy consumption per capita is 0.15 toe, including 48 kWh of electricity. In 2015, it had the fourth lowest energy consumption per capita in West Africa and one of the lowest in the world.

The share of biomass in total energy consumption has decreased sharply between 2010 and 2012 following the commissioning of the refinery, from 77% to 68%; but subsequently ...

Renewable in % electricity production

A Domestic Energy Strategy (Sed) was implemented for the supply of wood-energy in Niger, first within the framework of the "Energie II" project (1989-1998, World Bank's funds), and later within the framework of the "Energie domestique" project (2000-2003, World Bank and Danish funds). The main changes introduced through the Sed are the transfer to the rural communities of the management of ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In October 2015 Niger submitted its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to UNFCCC. The target is to reduce its GHG emissions by 2.5% by 2020 and by 3.5% by 2030 compared to the BAU level; with external support, the target would be raised to 25% in 2020 and 34.6% in 2030 (conditional target).

CO2 emissions from energy combustion have been multiplied by 3 since 2000 and stood at ...
