The private sector plans to invest 600 million dollars in development of renewable energy in 2017, it added.
In 2016, Tunisia's electricity production from renewable energy reached 579 gigawatt hours with a total capacity of 342 megawatts.
Experts say the Tunisian government will be forced to depend more on renewable energy to reduce the electricity production cost that directly affects the country's financial balance. ■
