Tunisia Grants Licences to 120 MW of Wind Projects

Tunisia’s Ministry of Industry and Small and Medium Enterprises has awarded licences to four onshore wind projects totally 120 MW with a total investment of TND 400 million (USD 134.5m). The four companies which have won licences will build wind farms of 30 MW each (Germany’s ABO Wind AG, Netherlands-based UPC Tunisia Renewables, and French firms Lucia Holding & VSB Energies Nouvelles). The companies will then sell the output to state utility STEG at prices ranging from TND110 to TND135/MWh (€31.70-€39/MW) for 20 years.

Tunisia aims to generate 30% of its electricity from renewables by 2030. The goal will be achieved through the addition of 1 GW of capacity in 2017-2020 and 1.25 GW in 2021-2030.
