Algeria-EU: Official request to export surplus electricity generated from solar energy to Europe


“Algeria has already sent an official request to the European representative to integrate the European interconnection market, allowing it to export surplus electricity generated from solar energy to Europe,” pointed out Minister of Energy Mustapha Guitouni.


In a news conference held at the end of the third annual meeting of the Algeria-EU high-level political dialogue on energy, Minister of Energy Mustapha Guitouni said that  electrical interconnection between Algeria and the northern shore of the Mediterranean, depends on the establishment of an interconnection among European countries themselves, especially between Spain and France.

He also stressed the need to establish interconnection between Algeria and Morocco and between Algeria and Tunisia.


The EU Commissioner for action on Climate and Energy, Miguel Aias Canete, in a reply to a reporter’s question about long-term gas contracts between Algeria and the European Union, the EU official said the gas volume of the new supply deals between Algeria and the EU will not be affected.

He stressed that EU’s major concern is natural gas supply, adding that Algeria is “one of the main EU suppliers, providing 13% of its needs.”

Algeria is a “reliable partner with which we have never had any problem.”
