Facts & Figures

Electricity Production Capacity

Germany’s electricity production capacity is considerably higher than Algeria’s, reflecting its population of over 82 million, and its strong industry. Algeria has been able to reach 100% electrification rate, and is deploying enormous efforts in order to meet growing electricity demand (double digit yearly growth rates).

CO-2 Emissions per Capita

Algeria and Germany have committed to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions under the Paris Agreement. Both countries have a clear interest in supporting the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions: Germany’s emission level is decreasing, but still high, while Algeria is strongly concerned by the consequences of climate change (drought, desertification). The two countries are thus cooperating within international frameworks to promote CO-2 emissions reduction and transformation of energy systems.

Renewable Energy Targets 2030

As a leading country of renewable energy generation, Germany has managed to increase steadfastly its renewable electricity generation. The integration of increasing shares of variable renewable energy sources into the system and power grids is an example of lessons learned that Germany has to share. Algeria is pursuing ambitious renewable energy generation targets, and has considerably increased power generation from renewable energy within the last few years.

Solar PV Installation Targets

Both Germany and Algeria invest significant efforts to extend their solar energy capacities, in collaboration with public and private sector, national and international partners. Bilateral good practice exchange contributes to the promotion of solar energy in both countries.
