Energy in Eritrea is an industry lacking in natural resources, though it has plenty of potential.
Eritrea's final consumption of electricity is 33 kilotonne of oil equivalent (ktoe).
In 2019, some off-the-grid community systems rely on a combination of solar power, diesel generators and grid batteries.
Eritrea is developing building its sustainable energy capacity from such sources as wind and solar. Development of renewable energy sources helps give the country access to reliable energy and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
