The report outlines recommendations to help Tunisia achieve its 30% renewables goal while boosting growth and development.
The potential for widespread deployment of renewable energy technologies in the Arab region is considerable.
The historic Paris climate agreement, adopted by countries around the world in December 2015, aims to the rise of global temperature well below 2 degrees Celsius. Renewable energy will play a key role in this effort, which encompasses developing as well as developed countries, by increasing the supply of cheap and accessible energy in a less carbon-intensive manner.
The report discusses challenges in policy making and proposes a co-ordinated effort to collect data on the installed costs of solar PV in Africa, across all market segments to improve the efficiency of policy support and accelerate deployment.
This study assesses the capability of the European Union’s Mediterranean Partner Countries (MPCs) to develop local renewable energy manufacturing industries, with a focus on three pilot countries: Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt.
African countries need to meet fast-growing energy demand and extend modern energy services to more communities while also improving people’s health and ensuring long-term sustainability. The continent could meet nearly a quarter of its energy needs through the use of indigenous, clean, renewable energy by 2030, according to this report by the International Renewable...
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has conducted quantitative assessments of the prospects for renewable energy deployment in Africa’s five regional power pools. This synthesis report summaries the findings of those five regional power studies, adding a consolidated outlook for the continent. The report also explains the energy-modelling approach employed and...
The Global Atlas for Renewable Energy (Global Atlas) aims to close the gap between countries with access to the datasets, expertise and financial support to evaluate their renewable energy potential, and those lacking such elements. As of January 2015, a total of 67 countries and more than 50 institutes and partners were contributing to the initiative, which is coordinated by...
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and Sweden’s Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) have examined the potential for renewable power generation based on resource availability all over Africa.
The Pan-Arab Renewable Energy Strategy adopted in 2013 represents a consensus across the League of Arab States on pursuing a sustainable energy future. The strategy calls for large-scale development of the Arab region’s enormous renewable energy potential, including resources for renewable electricity generation, by the year 2030.
