About Senegal

Senegal has two small coal-fired power plants. Electricity in Senegal is generated mostly from non-coal fossil fuel sources such as oil- and diesel-fired power plants. Senegal is increasing its energy production from hydro and renewable sources, even though the total production is comparatively small. The Sendou power station is a controversial 125 megawatt (MW) coal-fired plant that was recommissioned in 2021. In July 2019, the plant halted operations following years of opposition and issues. However, the government announced gas conversion plans for the plant in October 2021. Senegal is a part of the Powering Past Coal Alliance (PPCA) dedicated to switching from coal to clean energy sources. In its December 2020 Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) submission under the Paris agreement, Senegal committed to a 7% emissions reduction by 2030 below its business as usual scenario. With the support of the international community, this goal could conditionally increase to a 29% reduction within the same time period.
