Tunisia

Tunisia relies almost entirely on fossil fuels to meet its domestic energy needs. Over 94% of installed energy capacity in the country is hydrocarbon-fired. Tunisia imports most of its energy needs, despite being a relatively small natural gas and oil producer. The remaining 6% of installed capacity come from renewable energy resources; mostly hydro and wind. The government is making efforts to integrate 30% of total electricity generation from renewable energy resources by 2030. Tunisia has also focused strongly on energy efficiency as a way of diversifying its energy mix, with existing regulatory frameworks and energy efficiency laws. The government seeks to reduce energy consumption by 17% by 2020 and by 30% in 2030. 

Tunisia is a RCREEE member state since 2008.

Morocco, Tunisia, Jordan, and Egypt Lead 13 Arab States in Sustainable Energy RCREEE launched the first index to compare and benchmark sustainable energy competitiveness in the Arab region. Beirut, Lebanon – 26 September, 2013 – According to the newly launched Arab Future Energy Index™ (AFEX), Tunisia, Morocco, and Jordan earned the top three ranks in energy efficiency capabilities and progress. In renewable energy Morocco, Jordan, and Egypt held the top three ranks, respectively. Dr. Tareq Emtairah, Executive Director, Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE) presented index key findings and insights today at Beirut Energy Forum
Cairo, Egypt – 21 st May, 2013 – The Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE) has published brief studies on its member states’ renewable energy and energy efficiency market. RCREEE’s thirteen Arab member states were ranked on fixed dimensions that include investments, institutional capacity, electricity pricing, future targets, and policies. The country profiles also analyze current and planned renewable energy projects. The profiles provide a simple tool for policy makers, researchers, and investors to know more about Arab states’ readiness in the field. RCREEE will launch the profiles at the Arab Energy Efficiency Day to be held in 21 st May in Cairo.
Alarming facts.The energy consumption in the Arab Mediterranean Region is climbing dramatically mainly due the increase of Air Condition Units and other electric appliances. This is a conclusion in latest report on “Energy Efficiency Indicators” by Plan Bleu which was elaborated in close cooperation with the Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE) in Cairo with the support of MED-ENEC.
