Yemen

Yemen produces and exports oil and gas from its indigenous fossil fuel resources. The country’s primary energy consumption is entirely based on fossil fuels. Yemen is also important on international energy trade due to its proximity to shipping routes. Yemen’s economy is dependent on the hydrocarbon sector, which accounts for nearly 60% of government revenues.
Yemen also faces low electricity access rates (40%) and its infrastructure is outdated, as well as insufficient to meet country’s needs, resulting in frequent blackouts. The government is making efforts to set add more electricity capacity to the country and to develop a renewable energy sector. Renewable energy targets and aims to have 15% of installed electricity capacity come from renewable energy resources by 2025. Yemen is also in the process of preparing its NEEAP to support more energy efficiency.

Yemen is a RCREEE member state since 2008.
