Highlights

  • Tunisia aims to cover 35% of its power mix with renewables in 2030.
  • CO2 emissions decreased by 1.7% in 2022.
  • STEG has the monopoly on power generation, transmission and distribution, and manages gas transmission and distribution.
  • ETAP is the largest oil and gas company.
  • The country relies increasingly on gas imports from Algeria (62% in 2022).
  • Gas dominates its power mix (82% in 2022).
  • The government controls energy prices. It plans to accelerate the reduction of fuel subsidies in order to reduce the budget deficit.
  • Electricity prices closely follow gas prices due to the dominant share of gas in the power mix.
  • Total energy consumption remained stable in 2022.
  • Electricity consumption increased by 6% while gas consumption dipped by 2% in a context of limited supplies (2022).
  • The government plans to develop over 2 GW of renewables by 2025.
  • Tunisia aims to export up to 6 Mt of green hydrogen to Europe by 2050.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Industry, Mining, and Energy defines and implements the energy policy. It regulates the public energy companies through two directorates: the General Electricity Directorate and the General Hydrocarbons Directorate.

  • Energy Supply

    Gas:

    Tunisia's gas production, which covered 61% of domestic consumption in 2010, has been declining since then and only covered 38% of consumption in 2022. The remainder is covered by imports from Algeria through contracts, a tax package ("forfait fiscal") on gas transit to Europe, and additional supplies; in May 2022, Algeria suspended additional supplies, thus limiting gas supply to Tunisia.

  • Energy Prices

    Electricity:

    Electricity rates can include a fixed charge and an energy charge that is different according to the sector, time of day/night, peak times, and the voltage (high, medium, low).

  • Energy Consumption

    The country's per capita consumption is 0.9 toe in 2022, which is 3 times lower than the EU average but average for the region. Its per capita electricity consumption is around 1 550 kWh (2022), also close to the average for North African countries (1 460 kWh).

  • Issues & Prospects

    Electricity:

    The first phase of the renewable power generation programme, that was launched in 2017, aimed to develop 1 GW of renewables (650 MW of solar and 350 MW of wind), 62% of which was assigned to IPPs, for a total investment of TND 2.5bn (US$836m). The programme sets a framework for private investors through calls for tenders and calls for projects.

The Tunisia energy market data since 1990 and up to is included in the Excel file accompanying the Tunisia country report.
It showcases the historical evolution, allowing users to easily work with the data.

Key Data included in the excelsheet:

  • Economic indicators: Annual historical economic indicators, energy security, energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
  • Supply indicators: Annual historical reserves, capacity, production and external trade (imports(+) exports(-) balance).
  • Demand indicators: Annual historical consumption per capita, consumption trends, total consumption, final consumption (per energy and per sector) and electricity consumption total and per sector.
  • Energy Balance: total and per energy.
  • Tunisia Energy Prices: In addition to the analysis provided on the report we also provided a data set which includes historical details on the Tunisia energy prices for the follow items: price of premium gasoline (taxes incl.), price of diesel (taxes incl.), price of electricity in industry (taxes incl.), price of electricity for households (taxes incl.), price of natural gas in industry (taxes incl.), prices of natural gas for households (taxes incl.), spot price of Brent and CO2 emissions (from fuel combustion).
