Lebanon

Lebanon relies on importing fossil fuels to meet its domestic energy demand. 94% of the country’s total primary energy consumption is for fossil fuels, while 88% of the installed energy capacity is fossil fuel fired. The remaining 12% comes from renewable energy; mostly hydropower.

Still, Lebanon suffers from disruptions on the delivery of these energy imports, as well as from sustained electricity supply. Lebanon aims to have 30% of its electricity to be provided by renewable resources by 2030. Lebanon adopted its second NEEAP in 2016. It aims for a level of 5% savings in the total Lebanese electric power demand in 2020.

Lebanon is a RCREEE member state since 2008.
