Renewable energies: Morocco ranked first in the MENA region


The progress and investments made by Morocco in the production of renewable energies were recognized. The kingdom was ranked first in the Middle East and North Africa region in the “Green Future” index published by the “MIT Technology Review”.

Morocco ranks first in the Middle East and North Africa region in the “Green Future” index, the Emirati channel “Sky News Arabia” reported on its website. The ranking is published by the “MIT Technology Review,” which assesses the renewable energy progress of 76 countries and territories.

In recent years, Morocco has deployed its energy strategy based mainly on the development of renewable energies and invested a lot of resources in order to achieve energy sovereignty. These colossal investments, undertaken since 2009, aim to ensure the energy independence of the kingdom and to contribute to the reduction of gas emissions.

Morocco’s energy policy, based on renewable energies, has made it possible to increase electricity production to 37% in ten years. Today, Morocco produces more than 4,000 megawatts of wind and solar energy, becoming one of the pioneers in this field. With a large solar power plant installed in Noor Ouarzazate that produces 580 megawatts and provides clean electricity to more than one million households, the Moroccan model is attracting foreign investors and being emulated in the region and around the world.

Morocco intends to increase the contribution of renewable energies to the energy mix to 52% by 2030. King Mohammed VI, during his opening speech of the parliamentary session, insisted on the need to achieve energy sovereignty in order to strengthen the kingdom’s strategic security.
