Jordan, March 2012 RENEWABLE ENERGY DEVELOPMENT IN TUNISIA Moncef HARRABI
I.T UNISIAN E NERGY C ONTEXT The Tunisian Energy Context is characterized by : High growing in international oil price. High growing in international oil price. Limited potential of national hydrocarbon resources. Limited potential of national hydrocarbon resources. Rapid increase in energy demand. Rapid increase in energy demand. Annual energy subsidy increase. Annual energy subsidy increase.
T UNISIAN E NERGY C ONTEXT Installed capacity The distribution of the 3% RE Based power capacity is as follows Gas share in Electricity production is 98%
T UNISIAN E NERGY C ONTEXT 1.I NSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK A- Organisation and Regulation Main institutions : MIT / STEG, STEG ER, ANME,... Supervision : The Ministry of Industry and Trade is responsible for the supervision of : - Energy policy : Hydrocarbons, electricity and RE. - Regulation : by laws and decrees. -Tariffs. -Electricity sector : Liberalisation of electricity production (1996). STEG : monopoly of Electricity and Gas Transport and Distribution.
T UNISIAN E NERGY C ONTEXT I NSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK B- Specific Regulation framework for Renewable Objectives : Allow electricity production from renewable energies and access to the grid. Main features of Energy Conservation law (February 2009) : Residential, tertiary and industrial sectors. Exclusivity sale to STEG. Limited to 30% of electricity production exceed. Tariffs : STEG sales Tariffs Role of STEG : Connect private installation when fulfilling technical conditions. Transport electricity to consumption point.
Tunisia has invested a great effort in the development of energy conservation and RE, by installing specific financing scheme and laws for RE and EE and creating research center dedicated to RE, in order to : Diversify the means of power generation. Reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Introduce new technologies. Open new perspectives for the integration of new sectors in the local industry. Develop regional and international cooperation. Introduction of renewable energy must take into account stability and reliability of the national grid. II.P RESENT SITUATION OF RE 3.RE D EVELOPMENT S TRATEGY

Prosol Elec Project (Roof top) Financial mechanism Customer : 10% initial investment, STEG : Inverter, FNME : 30%, MEDREC :10%, Credit Bank : 30 % Easy payment of a credit without interest through electricity bill P RESENT SITUATION OF RE SOLAR ENERGY
P RESENT SITUATION OF RE 8.S OLAR W ATER H EATING Prosol Thermique Total installed surface in 2012 is estimated to be 700 000 m2
P RESENT SITUATION OF RE S OLAR W ATER H EATING INCITATIVES MEASURES Allocation, by FNME, of direct subsidy covering 20% of the SWH price : with a limit of : 200 DT for 200 liters capacity; 400 DT for 300 liters and more SWH capacity. Credit sale over 5 years, with a covering of 30 bimonthly deadlines, through the STEG invoice, STEG guarantee credit recovery,
Solar Energy Creation of a Tunisian company specialized in the manufacture of solar photovoltaic modules NR-SOL : Production capacity: 25 MWp per year. Target market: Tunisia, Europe and Africa. Wind Energy Tunisian company SOCOMENIN Wind Towers specialized in the fabrication of tubular towers for the main wind turbine manufactures. Production capacity: 150 towers per year.
