Energy supply & demand background Surplus Deficit 2012 1635 ktoe Since 2000, Tunisia has become a net energy importer. In 2012, the energy independence ratio was approximately 80% with a deficit of 1.6 Million toe. This is mainly due to the decrease of the resources and the rapid growth in demand the energy deficit is dominated by natural gas (75%). This energy is the main source of electricity generation.
Energy supply & demand background Rapid growth of the peak load that generates increasing needs of investment in electricity generation capacity
Energy supply & demand background From 2004 to 2012, the share of energy expenditure in GDP has increased from 5% to 14%!!
Energy supply & demand background Million TND Energy Subsidies has put tremendous budgetary pressure on government. From 2004 to 2012, Energy Subsidies has increased from 0,5% to 3% Of GDP!
Energy supply & demand background 31% 39% 49% 40% Electricity is among the most heavily subsidized energy. In 2012 the share of the subsidy was 49% of electricity cost. In other words, the State shares the cost of kWh with the consumer.
Energy supply & demand background Increase of housing electricity consumption about 60% in 10 years 10 years 60%
Energy supply & demand background Refrigerator, TV and lighting are the most energy-consuming equipments with a total share of 79% The consumption of AC equipment s is not significant but its contribution to the peak load is very important. x annual growth rate household equipment rate Lighting ,3%100% TV ,8%96% Refrigerator ,9%92% AC ,2%15% WM ,9%50%
Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Feasibility Study Institutional and Capability Building Implementation and Promotion Monitoring & Evaluation
Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Production and consumption analysis and study of prioritization of products for labeling. International best practices and experiences study. Assessing the capacity to develop and implement a labeling program, including: Labeling programs policies and regulation; Standards/specifications; Stakeholders requirements and market needs; Institutional and relevant agencies preparation; Resources and capabilities, including funds, human resources, local manufacturing and testing facilities. Feasibility Study
ANME (Cordination, monitoring & Evaluation) Ministry of Trade (Manufacturers, Importers & Retailers Ministry of Industry (Manufacturers) INNORPI (Norms and Standards ) CETIME (Testing facilities) FEDELEC (Professional organization, communication, information); ODC (Consumer rights Organization; NGO); Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Institutional and Capacity Building Identification of national execution and implementation agencies & organizations
Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Implementation of testing facilities (CETIME) : Refrigerator 2002; AC equipement 2008; Lighting 2010; Testing protocol (INNORPI); Training (all Stakeholders); Conducting pilot tests (60 refrigeration equipments, 50 AC equipments). Refrigerator 60 equipments; AC 50 equipments; Institutional and Capacity BuildingDevelop testing capacity
Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Energy Conservation Law (2004) : Refrigerator 2004; AC equipement 2009; Lighting being promulgated; WM in development; Implementation and PromotionImplementation
Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Implementation and PromotionImplementation Training & information dissemination: Manufacturers, importers; Retailers support; Trade inspectors;

Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Implementation and Promotion MEPS (Minimum Energy Performance Standards) X X X X X 01/ / /2012
Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Awareness & communication campaign : All media (TV, radio, newspapers) Mailing Flyers, Posters Field campaigns Meetings, seminars and exhibitions Implementation and PromotionPromotion
Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Labeling process monitoring Monitoring, Evaluation and RevisionMonitoring Manufacturers importers CETIME (testing) ANME (Labeling Levels) Retailers Ministry of Trade
Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Labeling performance monitoring including display label quality, number of applications / manufacturers, number of products models / types and production / sale number of labeled products. Monitoring, Evaluation and RevisionMonitoring
Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Monitoring, Evaluation and RevisionEvaluation Market evaluation

Main results 218 ktoe Energy Saving 125 MTND Cost Saving 46 MTND Subsidy Saving
Success Factors & Lessons Learned A participatory multi-stakeholder approach is the most effective way of insuring the success of the strategy elaboration and implementation Control and market monitoring is an essential action to win consumer trust: Ministry of Trade have conducted in 2013 a large campaign of market surveillance to verify conformity of products tested against products marketed Communication is a powerful tool to promote high performance and efficient technologies: ANME is developing a new communication strategy to promote Energy Labeling Programs Governments must create a win - win situation between the state and the consumer: ANME is developing a mechanism to promote 1 million high performance refrigerators ( replacement & new acquisition)
