United Nations Environment Programme

Energy is a growth industry in Côte d’Ivoire. The country is an important supplier of energy to the region due to the excess electricity it generates,
and its reserves of natural gas and recent offshore finds of oil and natural gas. Electricity production in 2015 was 648 ktoe with 66.5 per cent produced
from fossil fuels and 31 per cent from hydro sources. Final consumptionof electricity in the same year was 774 ktoe with industry consuming 19.2

Energy Profile: Djibouti
United Nations Environment Programme

The electricity sector in Djibouti has not seen much progress for several decades and the electrification rate is just over 50 per cent (World Bank,
2016). The equipment is old and inefficient so peak production capacity is considerably lower than installed capacity. Most demand is from the
city of Djibouti and it has been growing at a high of 5 per cent a year.
