Enabling PV in the MENA region - Tunisia
The Emerging PV Market in Tunisia
Solar PV is close to achieving grid parity in a number of MENA countries. Simultaneously, more and more governments are promoting large-scale solar projects and encouraging the decentralized installation of photovoltaic systems connected to the grid. In this context, the overall aim of the “Enabling PV” Project is to contribute to the sustainable deployment of solar
photovoltaic power in the MENA region. The project was led by GIZ as part of a regional project, the “Mediterranean Solar Plan – Technological Cooperation” funded by the International Climate Initiative (ICI), led by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
Together with the German Solar Association eclareon was in charge of completing the “ENABLING PV” Project in Jordan and Tunisia. The aim was to identify viable PV business models, describe PV development procedures and to assess existing administrative barriers which hinder the success of the business model. A close cooperation with national stakeholders was implemented. In close collaboration with Policy Consulting department the Business Consulting unit contributed with calculations on the economic feasibility of different business models, including sensitivity analyses for different policy options and with a cash flow modelling tool that covered several PV project case studies for Tunisia.
