Primary energy consumption meanwhile increased by 4.52% over the prior year to 0.12 QBTUs, equating to 6.58 million BTUs per capita which places the Cote dIvoire (IvoryCoast) into the 83rd percentile of countries worldwide for per capita primary energy consumption.
The Cote dIvoire (IvoryCoast)’s total electricity capacity has increased on an annual compound basis by 0.19% over the last 20 years to 1,218 megawatts (MW) in 2008. In the last year, the total installed capacity base neither increased nor decreased.
Total renewable energy capacity accounts for 49.75% of this total installed capacity base whilst renewable energy sources excluding hydropower account for 0%.
Total capacity did not increase in the last year whilst Conventional Thermal Energy added the most capacity in the last 5 years, reaching 612 MW in 2008.
Total electricity generation meanwhile climbed 3.04% over the last year to 5.55 billion kilowatthours (bn kWh) in 2008 with the largest source for electricity generation being Conventional Thermal (64.11% of total net generation).
Conventional sources including conventional thermal (coal, petroleum, gas), nuclear power and hydro pumped storage accounted for 64.11% of total electricity generated, up from 65.2% 5 years previously.
In 2009, the Cote dIvoire (IvoryCoast) had a zero balance net import requirement. There were no exports of electricity. Conventional Energy sources represented 50.25% of total installed capacity in the Cote dIvoire (IvoryCoast) in 2008, an increase of 2.59 percentage points over a 5 year period.
Conventional thermal energy had an installed capacity base of 612 MW in 2008, a change of 0 MW over the previous year and a 2.16% change on a compound basis over a 5 year period. Conventional thermal energy has seen its share of total installed capacity increase from 47.66% in 2004 to 50.25% in 2008. Conventional Thermal Energy generated 3.56 billion kilowatthours of electricity in 2008, equating to 5.81 billion kilowatthours of electricity per million kilowatts of capacity.
Hydroelectricity had an installed capacity base of 606 MW in 2008, a change of 0 MW over the previous year. It’s share of total installed capacity decreased from 52.34% in 2004 to 49.75% in 2008 and it’s share of renewable installed capacity remained unchanged at 100% in 2008.
Hydroelectricity generated 1.88 billion kilowatthours of electricity in 2008, equating to 33.87% of the total electricity generated. This is equivalent to 3.1 billion kilowatthours of electricity per million kilowatts of capacity, which was the highest ratio amongst renewable energy sources.
