Renewable energies

Favourable investment environment and generous incentives for renewable energies.

The green energy sector emerged in Tunisia in the 1950s through STEG's investment in hydroelectric power. Aware of the challenge of its energy security, Tunisia has embraced a policy of gradually integrating renewable energies into the energy mix as a priority axis of development. The objective is to reach 30% of electricity production from renewable energies by 2030. The country has significant development potential, particularly in wind and solar power, and has adopted a framework law, promulgated in 2015 defining a legal base for the implementation of private renewable energy projects.

The contribution of renewable energies in the production of electricity should reach 30% by 2030 with a total installed capacity of 3,815 MW. In order to meet the objectives set in the national strategy, Tunisia has put in place a plan to accelerate the projects for the production of electricity from RE – with 80% private investments share.
