- Institutions & Energy Policy
- Energy Companies
Gas production is dominated by British Gas (BG) which supplies more than 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. The...
- Energy Supply
Tunisia has limited hydrocarbon resources (425 mbl of oil and 65 bcm of gas at the end of 2015). Hydroelectric resources are low and there is no coal. However, the potential for renewables (biogas, wind and solar) in the country is enormous (an average of 3 000 hours of sun per year, or 5 kWh/m...
- Energy Prices
To face the increase in international oil prices, the Government decided to increase oil product prices in 2007 and 2008. In 2014, the Government announced a cut in fuel subsidies leading to a 6.4% increase in the gasoline price. The planned energy subsidy reform is expected to reduce the budget...
- Energy Consumption
The country's per capita consumption is 1 toe, which is 5 times lower than the EU average. Its per capita electricity consumption is 1 4010 kWh (2014).
Total energy consumption increased rapidly between 2000 and 2010, and since 2012 (around 3%/year; it decreased by 4.5% in 2011 due to the...
