Tunisian Solar Plan (PST) 2010-2016

Last updated: 19 April 2018

The Tunisian Solar Plan is a Public-Private Partnership, spanning from 2010 to 2016, promoting renewable energy production through a set of 40 projects and patnerships. Out of these 40 projects, 5 are publicly-led, 29 privately, 5 support the National Solar Plan implementation and one comprises the creation of a new institution, namely the STEG Renewable Energy.

The plan specifically targets wind and solar technologies as well as energy efficiency. PROSOL ELEC, a plan to develop electricity production from solar PV, and PROSOL, to develop solar thermal water heating, are two of the Partnerships major long-running projects.

The National Solar Plan aspires to reduce national energy consumption by 22% in 2016 and GHG total emissions by 1.3 million tCO2 every year. In so doing, the share of renewable energy sources in the total Tunisian energy mix will rise from 0.8% to 4.3% by 2014.

The plan is financed by the National Fund for Energy Efficiency, STEG, private funding and international cooperation funds.
