Year of launch:: 

In April 2009, the National Agency for Energy Management (l’Agence Nationale pour la Maitrise de l’Energie – ANME) set up the first wind atlas of the country.  This was updated in 2015.

This map identifies those sites with optimal wind conditions for setting up wind farms. The total energy potential for favourable sites is estimated at 10 GW.

Wind 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%
