ICU – Instituto per la Cooperazione


The town of Nabeul has limited access to energy, and consequently its public services (town lighting, water treatment) work only sporadically. To remedy the detrimental effects on the environment and public safety, the ICU has installed two photovoltaic power stations to make up for the shortfall in energy.

The use of solar power demonstrates the Town of Nabeul's commitment to renewable energy. To reskill the local workforce, training in the management of photovoltaic systems is offered. The town administrators are trained to formulate and implement regional policies on sustainable energy.

The long-term objective is to develop this project on a national scale, notably through awareness campaigns amongst the workforces of other towns in Tunisia and the neighbouring populations.
