The map shows by type the locations of power generation facilities that are operating, under construction or planned  – including liquid fuels, hybrid, solar PV, wind and geothermal.

Generation sites are marked with different sized circles to show sites of 1-9MW, 10-99MW and 100MW and above.

The map also shows open oil and gas blocks, the location of tanker terminals and the country's closed oil refinery.

A table provides a summary of key population demographics, with a population pyramid below.

Three other charts compare Eritrea to Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda for key indicators focused on, access to electricity, access to clean fuel and clean fuel technologies and share of renewable energy in final energy consumption.
