About 52% energy security for Tunisia

Secretary General of the Tunisian Energy Society Fayçal Farhat Thursday said on Express Fm that up to the end of June 2023, Tunisia’s energy security stood at around 52%, adding that 50% of energy needs come from imports, which is considered a very low rate.

He affirmed that the solutions lie in exploiting the resources currently available to Tunisia, stressing that it is unreasonable that national production of renewable energies should not exceed 2%.

Farhat went on to say that energy development projects, concepts and strategies should be put into practice, pointing out that current legislation and the existing administrative system and procedures do not allow projects decided by the State to be carried out successfully.

“97% of Tunisia’s electricity production comes from natural gas”, he said, adding that “we buy around 62% from Algeria”.
