The switch to renewable energies in Morocco will create up to 482,000 new domestic jobs over the next 20 years, according to a recent study by the Euro-Mediterranean Forum of Institutes of Economic Sciences (FEMISE).
The latter explains that most of the jobs created would be found in highly skilled workers to build and maintain wind farms, solar power plants and other energy installations.
FEMISE, “Forum Euroméditerranéen des Instituts de Sciences Économiques” (the Euro-Mediterranean Forum of Institutes of Economic Sciences), is a Euromed network established in June 2005 as an NGO (under the French Law of 1901), following 8 years of activities. The network gathers more than 90 members of economic research institutes, representing the 37 partners of the Barcelona Process. FEMISE is coordinated by the Economic Research Forum (ERF), Egypt and Institut de la Méditerranée (IM), France.
The General Objective is to reinforce dialogue between stakeholders and conduct research on priority EuroMed issues.
