- a memorandum of understanding between CEA and STEG (Tunisian Electricity and Gas Company) to promote collaboration in the field of smart electricity grids. Thus, from expertise to the establishment of a pilot demonstration site and industrial support, any identified action will give rise to a specific contract specifying the concrete conditions for implementation.
