  • Test the investigated incentives on the industries for which feasibility studies have been already elaborated in the precedent phase of PROSOL Industry
  • identify the most suitable incentive to strengthen the existing Tunisian regulatory framework for the promotion of solar thermal energy in industries and
  • Design the incentive mechanism in details
  • Investigate and address other regulatory issues, further to the incentive tool
  • Determine the Governmental funds necessary to provide the incentive and their coverage under the Government Budget
  • Draft a proposal to the Tunisian Government to integrate the identified incentive tool into the existing regulatory framework on solar thermal energy to strengthen the promotion of solar thermal technologies integration in industrial processes.
