Guinea - Energy and power



In 2001, installed capacity was 195,000 kW, about three-quarters of which was hydroelectric. A total of about 770 million kWh was produced in 2000, of which 46% came from fossil fuels and 54% from hydropower. Much of the nation's electricity is consumed by the Fria-Boké bauxite-processing complex. In the same year, consumption of electricity totaled 716.1million kWh. A proposed 100 MW dam on the Bafing River would serve the proposed Tougué-Dabola processing plant. Another proposed dam would be built on the Konkouré River to provide power for the proposed aluminum plant at Ayé-Koé.
