Morocco, a major player in renewable energies

The projects that Morocco has launched in the last decade in the field of renewable energies have made it an “important player” with large multinationals operating in this sector.

Morocco is making great efforts to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels through solutions that promote the development of renewable energies, which now serve as a “strategic choice”.

In this sense, Morocco has set the goal of increasing the share of renewable energies in the national energy mix to 42% by 2020 and to 52% by 2030.

The Kingdom, which has tremendous potential, has endorsed, for a decade, a voluntarist and ambitious renewable energy policy as an alternative allowing a low emission of greenhouse gas. Moroccan solar energy production launched in 2009 and which aims to reach 2000 MW.

A series of major projects were set up, including the Ouarzazate solar complex, the Ain Bani Mathar thermo-solar power plant, the extension of the wind farm in addition to the new hydroelectric power stations.

In this regard, the momentum that HM King Mohammed VI has given to the development of clean energies, adding that Morocco, a committed player at the regional and international levels, continues to provide support to international efforts to address the challenges arising from climate change.

The Kingdom has also pledged to make climate issues a priority at the continental level as well as to raise awareness in the international community about the need to support Africa’s efforts in climate matters.
