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.
