About this project


The key focus of the proposed GEF project is to capacitate Tunisia to implement the TSP to its full potential i.e. 30% renewable electricity generation by 2030 using PV, wind and CSP. A project-based, stand-alone approach, though useful, is not sufficient to achieve this ambitious target. The proposed GEF project will, instead, support the implementation of the TSP using NAMAs pertaining to the three technologies. It will put in place the institutional and policy frameworks necessary to coordinate and support the up-scaling of renewable electricity in Tunisia, as well as developing an architecture for developing these NAMAs. Besides these two technical assistance components, the project also encompasses an investment component to support two baseline investment projects to enhance their mitigation potential and to be framed as supported NAMAs.


To transform Tunisia"s energy sector for achieving large-scale emission reductions through the deployment of a TSP NAMA.
