Energy efficiency in the Tunesian industry

As of: September 2021

The project helped to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Tunisian industry by disseminating energy efficient applications. The project promoted the installation of pilot facilities, the training of Tunisian experts and the performance of awareness-raising measures.

State of implementation/results

  • Project completed.
  • Energy audits were implemented to increase energy efficiency in two selected companies. Energy monitoring systems were used to check the savings.
  • The focus was ISO 50001 (energy management systems) concerning the training of Tunisian specialists and the awareness of other industrial enterprises in the field of energy efficiency in industry.
  • Regarding cogeneration, the project aimed to optimize the use of this technology in Tunisia through inventory surveys, cartography, and the development of a central monitoring system. The monitoring allows optimized use of cogeneration in Tunisia and is helping to quantify saved GHG emissions even after the end of the project.
