Morocco will exceed 52% of its energy mix in 2030, the Minister of Energy, Mines and the Environment, Aziz Rabbah said. Responding to an oral question on the opportunities of the energy transition in Morocco after the Covid-19 pandemic, presented by the PJD group to the chamber of advisers, the minister estimated that this figure could be reached before 2026 and this despite the delay occurring during an earlier period. He announced on this occasion that the 2021-2030 electricity system is based entirely on renewable energies and a reduced rate of gas.
A roadmap has been drawn up for hydrogen, a promising energy for Morocco which must welcome significant investments in this area, he added, indicating that a roadmap for bioenergy, the orientation towards industrialization and scientific research has also been developed.
The minister affirmed that the next decade will be that of renewable and clean energies, noting that the government is supporting this project through the adoption of laws and the implementation of projects and initiatives at different levels.
