Energy self-sufficient Algeria plans to export 400 MW of electricity surplus to Tunisia, the Algerian energy minister Mustapha Guitouni (photo) said. “The electricity export is part of President Bouteflika's power surplus export program, after achieving energy self-sufficiency,” the Minister said.
In Tunisia, demand in energy increases, especially in summer, with peak demand expected to reach 4,200 MW, up from the 175 MW last year. This situation forced the country’s power supplier STEG to voluntarily cut power to deal with the deficit.
