As an African pioneer in renewable energy, Morocco, since 2009, has embarked on a new perspective enabling it to diversify its energy mix and reduce its energy dependency.
A country formerly dependent on fossil fuels, thus increasing its energy bill.
Now, in 2020, renewable energy reaches 35% of the Moroccan energy mix and even tends to cover half of it, or even more, within 10 years.
By the end of 2019, nearly 3700MW of total installed power in this area. In addition, several projects have been launched, or are in progress, with the help of MASEN, the contracting authority for renewable energy projects.
Flashback, in 2009, the Noor Ouarzazate power plant project was launched. 6 years later, this solar project already manages to feed nearly 160MW of the electricity grid in Morocco, making this station a world-class source of power.
At the end of 2019, several other projects have been launched: 700MW in solar, with 280MW to be produced by the Noor 1 Ouarzazate plant, 1215MW in wind, with 400MW divided between the Afssissat plant, and Akhfennir.
On the other hand, other projects are already under way, in this case 1150MW in solar and 640 in wind.
Still under the directives of the state, with MASEN, its right-hand man, the monitoring of these projects will be maintained, with a budget estimated at around 2.6 billion dollars injected by the state.
Its field of action currently extends beyond the territory for technical support missions, jointly with ONEE.
Marking a key positioning in the field of solar and wind energy, Morocco currently represents an attractive sunny wealth of major international projects, while developing an industry and expertise at home in the field.
