Derisking Renewable Energy Investment
The Tunisian Solar Plan (TSP) is Tunisia’s official long-term plan for renewable energy. The TSP sets out Tunisia’s ambition to harness its renewable energy resources in order to advance Tunisia’s sustainable development. It includes specific 2030 targets for investment in wind energy, solar photovoltaic and concentrated solar power.
UNDP is assisting the Government of Tunisia with a Global Environment Facility funded project to support the development of a Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) for the TSP. The national implementing partner for the project is the Tunisian National Agency for Energy Conservation (Agence Nationale pour la Maîtrise de l'Energie, ANME).The project will be implemented between 2015-2019.
As part of the project preparation activities, UNDP has performed a DREI modelling analysis on the possible government interventions to create an investment environment to meet the TSP’s 2030 targets. The results provide quantitative data on the cost effectiveness of these government measures. The aim of this report is to assist in the selection of the government interventions which can be included in the NAMA.
