In the recent years, an effort has been made for the electrification of major cities of the country, but the rural electrification is still challenging. Most of the electricity produced domestically is based on hydropower and fossil fuels. Renewable energy sources are already present in the country’s electricity generation capacity and have been experiencing great growth for several years.

Most of the demand is also imported from the countries of the sub-region including Ghana, Nigeria, and Cote d’Ivoire through an interconnection network. However, the continuity of the electricity supply service is not guaranteed and constitutes a challenge for the national company CEET in charge of distribution.
