In Mali, the electricity consumption per capita is about 90 kWh, against an average of 116 kWh in the ECOWAS countries and 500 kWh on average for Africa*. The average consumption is also characterized by a strong disparity between rural and urban areas. 

 The country is an ECOWAS member and, with the rest of the region, adopted a concerted approach to the implementation of the SE4All Country Action, with the development of the Action Agenda alongside the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Action Plans, and their formal adoption. In this process, the country set a 87% access target to be reached by 2030 for electricity (110% in urban areas, 81% in rural areas) and 100% for clean cooking solution, while further improving the share of renewable energy sources in the electricity mix to 37%. Energy efficiency goal is to achieve a primary energy intensity of 0,43 ( ktoe / GDP) by 2030. 

The SE4All implementation is followed by a focal point in the Ministry of Energy
