Year of launch:: 

In cooperation with the Italian Ministry of Environment, Land and Sea (MIETM), MEDREC and UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), ANME launched the PROSOL Industry programme in 2010. This programme aims to promote the use of solar thermal technologies in industry and to install 100,000 m² of collectors in Tunisia by 2030.

As the use of solar thermal technologies in industrial processes is complex, various initiatives have been taken to overcome technical and regulatory obstacles.  To this end, ANME has researched ways of integrating solar thermal technology in industry and has set up an incentive programme.

In 2018, a pilot project of 1,000 m² of flat solar collectors was put into operation at the Olympias plant in Sousse (formerly Benetton), providing a proportion of the plant’s heat needs.




Collective Solar Power
  • 30%
    The scarcity of national natural resources along with the increase of energy demand leads Tunisia to initiate an energy transition process focusing on the increase of the share of renewable energies in the production of electricity in order to reach 12% by 2020 and 30% by 2030, in comparison to the current 3%. Indeed, the objective is to reach a renewable electric power of 3815 MW by 2030.
  • 45%
    International negotiations on climate change resulted in a historic agreement in December 2015 in Paris called the "Paris Agreement"
  • 35%
