  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The General Energy Directorate, which operates under the Ministry of Energy, Mining and Renewable Energies, defines and implements the energy policy. It regulates the public energy companies through three directorates (Electricity, Gas and Energy Efficiency; Exploration and Production of Hydrocarbons; Refining, Transport and Distribution) and a national Observatory of Energy (ONE).

  • Energy Companies


    Gas production is dominated by Shell (BG until 2016), which supplies about half of the national demand. All the gas is sold to STEG which holds a monopoly on gas distribution. BG, which has been present in Tunisia for over 25 years, is a major player, with cumulated investments of over US$4bn.

  • Energy Supply


    Tunisia has limited hydrocarbon resources (425 mbl of oil and 64 bcm of gas at the end of 2018). The potential for wind and solar is enormous (an average of 3 000 hours of sun per year or 5 kWh/m2 per day). Hydroelectric resources are low and there is no coal.

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity rates include a fixed charge and an energy charge that is different according to the time of day/night, peak times and the voltage (high, medium, low). The electricity price for domestic consumers remained stable between 2008 and 2013, at around US$15c/kWh. In 2014, it increased by 40% because of two 10% rises decided by the Government and an increase in the US dollar exchange ...

  • Energy Consumption

    The country's per capita consumption is almost 1 toe, which is 5 times lower than the EU average. Its per capita electricity consumption is 1 425 kWh (2018).

    Total energy consumption increased rapidly between 2000 and 2010 (by 3.5%/year) and more moderately since 2011 (around 2.3%/year).

    Gas market share in total energy consumption increased rapidly between 2000 and 2010 (from ...
