Facts & Figures

Sunshine Hours per Year

Global demand for energy is steadily rising and requires new sources of energy production. Thanks to the continuous improvement of technologies, renewable energies become a progressively reliable alternative. However, most renewable energy sources depend on geographic conditions.


In this context, Tunisia can benefit from an impressive number of sunshine hours per year, much more than Germany.

CO2 Emissions

The emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) is one of the main causes for global warming and therefore affects us all. A successful energy transition consists not only in extending our sources of renewable energy, but rethinking our way each one of us handles his or her energy consumption.


CO2 Emission Reduction Target 2030

A sustainable energy transition consists not only in the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy, but also demands a reduction of CO2 emissions. Germany as well as Tunisia set themselves ambitious targets for reducing their emission until 2030.

“Women empowerment in the Tunisian energy and environmental sector: what are the next steps to uplift their role?”

According to the Global Gender Gap of 2020, Tunisia achieved the 4th ranking in terms of Gender Parity in the MENA Region. And this, thanks to the progress that has been since Tunisia’s independence. In fact, laws were reformed to advance gender equality and women’s right.

Furthermore, several initiatives have been carried out by the civil community so far to make a valuable change and enhance the role of women.

Despite all these gains, many challenges remain. In fact, although the high total number of graduated women in the energy and environmental sector, their presence in professional life still to be limited to 28% with a high concentration on administrative positions. They continue to be underrepresented at a technical and leadership position and high political levels, as well.

In this context, the Secretariat of the Tunisian Energy Partnership, implemented by the GIZ and mandated by the Tunisian Energy Ministry (MIEM) jointly with the federal Ministry of Economic affairs and Energy (BMWi), decided to carry outa Gender Action Plan to promote the role of women in the sector.

Through this mission, all the existent studies that were conducted to advance the presence of women in the sector have been analyzed. And to well define the current situation, a survey was carried out to interview the most brilliant women in the sector so that we can learn from their initiatives, best practices and recommendations.

Based on the most relevant recommendations gained through these investigations, an action plan has been set up.

Media at the Heart of the Energy Transition: Study Tour for Journalists from 02 to 06 March 2020

In the framework of the study tour organised by the Tunisian-German Energy Partnership for Tunisian and Moroccan journalists on energy transition, visits were organised to the Ruhr and Düsseldorf region in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Following an overview of the diversification of actors and approaches defining the German energy transition, Tunisian journalists appreciated this experience having gone through different phases of transformation: from coal, to renewable energies, to the introduction of new green technologies such as hydrogen and electric mobility. 
The Tunisian journalists noted that the success of this transition is due to the special interest given to a sector where innovation is a key indicator of success. Germany has adopted an incentive approach that has led to greater citizen involvement in promoting the energy transition. Awareness-raising measures were put in place for better communication around a highly recommended sector through in-depth studies conducted. 
To this end, Germany has now replicated the commitments of the European Union in its strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  
By taking advantage of this experience, Tunisian journalists have perceived the opportunities for the establishment of a continuous exchange in terms of energy policy between Germany and Tunisia.
