November 15, 2020

(TAP) - Nearly 66,500 households will be the recipients of the Scaling up of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in the Building Sector in Tunisia project under a contract for its implementation signed Friday in Tunis by the National Agency for Energy Conservation (French: ANME) and the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ).

This project will enable low and middle income families contribute to the energy transition in Tunisia. The project, which has a socio-economic and environmental impact, fits within the implementation of the energy policy in Tunisia. It will help generate 1,000 jobs, said Industry Minister Saloua Sghaier during the signing ceremony.

This four-year project (2021/2024) worth around 15 million euros (about 48.6 million dinars) is supported by Nama Facility. The latter works on promoting programmes to fight greenhouse gas emissions through donations made by Great Britain (9 million euros) and Germany (6 million euros).

ANME will be in charge of the technical piloting of the programme , in coordination with the Tunisian Electricity and Gas Company (French: STEG). The financial management is entrusted to GIZ.

The project is geared towards households whose electricity consumption ranges between 1,200 and 1,800 kW/ year (between 100 and 150 kW/month), said ANME Director-General Fethi Hanchi. 800,000 consumers are targeted.

'Once implemented, this project will help Tunisian households save up to 41 million Tunisian dinars, while allowing the government to invest 71.1 million euros in the energy sector during the first 5 years,' said German Ambassador to Tunisia Peter Prügel.

He added the project will generate 53 MW of photovoltaic solar power which will cut C02 by 0.88 million tonnes by 2044.

UK Ambassador to Tunisia Edward Oakden said his country, which will host the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference ,will continue to support Tunisia in the energy sector.
