The Tunisian Electricity and Gas Company (STEG) still retains the lion's share of electricity production with 95% of national production at the end of September 2022. Electricity produced from natural gas (STEG + IPP) decreased by 1%. The production of electricity from renewable energy sources stood at 1.8% (taking into account the production of power stations only).
