Massive decarbonization of 80% by 2050 in Morocco

For the next 30 years, Morocco wants to bank on the green economy to make its economy more competitive. A roadmap has been presented to the United Nations in this direction.

Thus, Morocco will devote a share of renewable energies of 70% by 2040 and 80% by 2050 in the electricity mix, in terms of both energy and capacity, which is possible with current technologies and cost perspectives. To do this, the experts outlined the main directions for the decarbonization of industry by highlighting the importance of levers such as R&D and the adoption of a fiscal framework linked to the green transition of industry.

According to the document, this vision aims to accelerate, first, the strong development of renewable energies for carbon-free electricity, from an indicative target of 80% by 2050.

Then, enhance the electrification of uses in the industrial, building and transport sectors while evaluating the development potential of green hydrogen to decarbonize industry and road freight.

Then, generalize energy efficiency and efficiency in the use of natural resources in all sectors, while developing standards and quality infrastructure for construction, equipment and others.
