Prospects for strengthening Tunisian-German co-operation in renewable energy discussed

January 13, 2021

TAP) - The prospects for strengthening cooperation and partnership between Tunisia and Germany in the field of renewable energy were discussed at a meeting by VTC held Tuesday between Minister of Industry, Energy and Mines Salwa Sghaier and German Federal Minister of Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety Svenja Schulze.

The meeting was an opportunity to talk about the Tunisian solar plan which was updated in 2015.*

That plan sets promising targets for the production of 25% of electricity in renewable energy in 2025 and 30% in 2030, amid the worsening deficit of its primary energy balance, and the rising prices of oil and gas on international markets.

Sghaier recalled that a €7-million has been granted by Germany to Tunisia to finance the project to support the Tunisian solar plan for the period 2017-2020, as part of the national strategy for production of electricity from renewable energy.

This project aims to diversify the systems of electricity production from renewable energy through the installation of 1860 additional megawatts of renewable energy, she said, highlighting the launch of a tender, since 2018, to install 500 MW in photovoltaic energy.
