Electricity and Power
- Yemen is attempting to meet its rapidly growing power needs while reducing its dependence on oil for electricity generation.
- According to Yemen's Public Electricity Corporation (PEC), the country's electricity distribution network is inadequate.
- Electricity shortages are seen as limiting economic growth in Yemen. Currently, it is estimated that only 35 percent of the urban population and 5 percent of rural households have access to electricity from the national power grid; only 42 percent of the total population has access to electricity.
