1National Agency for Energy Conservation Improved Performance through Higher Standards: Energy Labeling and MEPS; the Tunisian experiencePresentation by: Fethi HANCHI Director - Division of Rational Utilization of Energy
2Contents The energy supply & demand background Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS ProgramsMain ResultsSuccess Factors & Lessons Learned
3Energy supply & demand background 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 demandthe energy deficit is dominated by natural gas (75%).This energy is the main source of electricity generation.SurplusDeficit2012 1635 ktoe
4Energy supply & demand background Rapid growth of the peak load that generates increasing needs of investment in electricity generation capacity
5Energy supply & demand background From 2004 to 2012, the share of energy expenditure in GDP has increased from 5% to 14%!!
6Energy supply & demand background Energy Subsidies has put tremendous budgetary pressure on government.From 2004 to 2012, Energy Subsidies has increased from 0,5% to 3% Of GDP!7000 Million TND
7Energy supply & demand background 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.49%40%39%31%
8Energy supply & demand background Increase of housing electricity consumption about 60% in 10 years10 years60%
9Energy supply & demand background household equipment rate 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.x100020042009annual growth ratehousehold equipment rateLighting14716171183,3%100%TV227927083,8%96%Refrigerator198223643,9%92%AC20243723,2%15%WM37378021,9%50%
10Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Feasibility StudyInstitutional and Capability BuildingImplementation and PromotionMonitoring & Evaluation
11Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Feasibility StudyProduction 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.
12Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Institutional and Capacity BuildingIdentification of national execution and implementation agencies & organizationsANME (Cordination, monitoring & Evaluation)Ministry of Trade (Manufacturers, Importers & RetailersMinistry of Industry (Manufacturers)INNORPI (Norms and Standards )CETIME (Testing facilities)FEDELEC (Professional organization, communication, information);ODC (Consumer rights Organization; NGO);
13Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Develop testing capacity Institutional and Capacity BuildingDevelop testing capacityImplementation of testing facilities (CETIME) :Refrigerator 2002;AC equipement2008;Lighting2010;Testing protocol (INNORPI);Training (all Stakeholders);Conducting pilot tests (60 refrigeration equipments, 50 AC equipments).Refrigerator 60 equipments;AC 50 equipments;
14Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Implementation and Promotion Energy Conservation Law (2004) :Refrigerator 2004;AC equipement2009;Lighting being promulgated;WM in development;
15Steps of Energy Labeling & MEPS Programs Implementation and Promotion Training & information dissemination:Manufacturers, importers;Retailers support;Trade inspectors;

24Success Factors & Lessons Learned A participatory multi-stakeholder approach is the most effective way of insuring the success of the strategy elaboration and implementationControl 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 marketedCommunication is a powerful tool to promote high performance and efficient technologies: ANME is developing a new communication strategy to promote Energy Labeling ProgramsGovernments 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)
