Renewable Energies at National Level

Standing as champion of renewable energies, Morocco sets an example both continent and worldwide. The Kingdom responds to the compelling energy transition to face current and future climat challenges heading for a strategic goal: reduction of 45.5% of greenhouse effect gases by 2030, ensuring domestic energy independence and general electrification.


Sectoral Strategy


Crossed by the Atlantic and Mediterranean breezes and enjoying a yearlong sunny weather, the Kingdom built vast areas of wind turbines, along with Ouarzazate photovoltaic plant which ranks among the biggest in the World.

The energy mix option, in which renewables would represent 64% of installed capacity, respond to a strategic vision at highest Governmental levels.

The advances made since the implementation of 2009 National Strategy enabled Morocco to rank 7th best country prepared to climatic change in 2022, according to the Climate Change Performance Index.
