Le marché solaire thermique en Tunisie, Christopher Gross, GIZ 2013

The foundations of the solar thermal market in Tunisia were laid in the nineteen-eighties. Initially only developing slowly, installations of solar water heaters soared following the implementation of the PROSOL–Programme in 2005. Having successfully installed more than 40 square meters per 1,000 inhabitants, Tunisia is by far the leader in North Africa.
This study gives insight into international market structures and links them to recent market developments in Tunisia. Particular emphasis is laid on the analysis of the policy scheme, installed capacities, market products and main supply structures. To close, the study evaluates the profitability for residential investors, currently representing the main purchasing group.
This study investigates the current state of Tunisia’s market for solar water heaters with a focus on (i) the links between national and international market developments (ii) the effectiveness of policy in procuring additional capacity (iii) a description of market products and main supply structures (iv) and the profitability of residential investors who are the largest consumers of solar water heaters.
The results show that the solar thermal market in its current state is characterized by various unsustainable events. As a consequence there is an implied risk that solar thermal as a whole could gain a negative reputation among the general public, damaging this emerging industry. This study develops recommendations for policy makers and market participants to counteract this development.
