Tunisian brewery takes lead on energy efficiency

Tunisia's economy is largely dependent upon fossil fuels, particularly gas, but efforts are underway to increase awareness of energy efficiency and alternatives. Germany's GIZ development agency is working with leading businesses to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, implementing more efficient technologies such as combined heat and power, and consumption reducing heat exchangers. Simultaneously, Tunisian specialists are being trained to monitor energy management systems. Longer-term job creation in the sector is also part of the plan.
