The three-day “Res4Med” seminar, organized in partnership with STEG (the Tunisian Company for Electricity and Gas) and ANME (the local Agency for Energy Management), highlights the role of renewable energies in Tunisia's future and the importance of strengthening an energy sector dialogue between the two countries.
The event, conceived as a follow up of an MoU signed in 2016 between STEG and Res4Med, has called an international network of companies and technology providers as well as consulting firms and academia, around the topic of developing renewables in the Mediterranean.
The Seminar is mainly addressed to Tunisian public companies’ middle management to share common views on the technical and financial tools to be put in place for suitable solutions for the integration of solar and wind power into the grid.
"Tunisia has a great potential and could easily achieve the national energy targets set for 2030 (30% of electricity production coming from renewables). However, a clear regulatory framework is necessary to ensure the projects’ bankability since the beginning and attract foreign investors - said Giuseppe De Beni, CEO and Managing Director of Italgen – The cooperation of the two countries is due to play a key role in promoting efficient energy solutions through a public-private dialogue with regional institutions, local governments and regulators".
