The key legislation for the development of the Ivorian electricity sector is the Electricity Act 1985, which liberalised the market. Since then two IPPs have entered the generating segment. CIE is a vertically integrated utility which is responsible for generation, transmission and distribution. 85% of the company is privately owned, but it is operated under a state concession. As part of the government’s strategy to increase power capacity and achieve financial equilibrium in the sector, Cote d’Ivoire reformed its electricity sector once again by enacting a new Electricity Code in March 2014. There is no specific policy in place for the expansion of renewable energy. However, green energy sources are expected to play a major role in the strategic action plan for the development of the electricity sector by 2030.
