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 12% of its electricity and thermal energy be provided by renewable resources by 2030. The country has also adopted a NEEAP in 2011 with energy efficiency targets of 5% in reduction in growth rate.

Lebanon is a RCREEE member state since 2008.
