The share of renewable energy generation within the energy mix has recently increased in Tunisia. After the first wind farm was built in 2000, about 360 million dinars were allocated to build three further wind farms in Metline and Kechabta. The Government also expected to reach 1130 MW of installed capacity in 2020 and 1840 MW in 2030. To anticipate this, it became necessary to establish a body to regulate the energy market in Tunisia. AETS was chosen to assist the Government in establishing regulation mechanisms for power generation from renewables. AETS was responsible for: • Assessing the current mechanisms and practices in the energy sector; • Drafting a benchmarking report regarding the feedback on the experience from 6 other countries on regulation; and • Proposing an institutional and regulatory framework to implement such mechanisms.
