Tunisia Air Conditioner Market Assessment
Air conditioners contribute significantly to peak power demand during Tunisia's hot summers. In 2021, the Tunisian Electricity and Gas Company (STEG) recorded a peak demand of 4,472 megawatts in August, estimating that 44% of that demand was due to the operation of air conditioners.
The Tunisian government, through its Agence Nationale pour la Maitrise de L'Energie (ANME) and all of its partners, is called on to take advantage of the significant potential for energy efficiency and to achieve the objectives it has set for itself by accelerating the implementation of programs that expand the adoption of efficient appliances, including air conditioners.
This report aims to assess the Tunisian market for air conditioners, particularly in terms of energy performance. The report provides an overview of the size and characteristics of the AC market in Tunisia, including product types, origins, and proportion of imports to locally manufactured units; an estimation of the informal market; energy performance; and price.
