The two parties have signed an agreement to boost Morocco’s transition to using more renewable energy and become a greener economy, as part of Morocco’s National Energy Efficiency Strategy (SNEE).
An SIE press release announced that the company, also known as Super ESCO, is aiming to help private enterprises and investors become more environmentally friendly.
The Ouarzazate solar plant, Ain Beni Mathar, and Foum El Oued stations are among Morocco’s most prominent solar projects.
Overall, Morocco seems to be taking shrewd and logical steps forward to actually reach its dreams of 100% renewable energy by 2050.
Leila Benali, the Minister of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development said earlier this month “Morocco has all the tools [it needs] to begin the transition to a carbon-free mode of [energy] production.”
Morocco’s national renewable energy policy, which aims to reduce the country’s usage of coal, oil, and gas production, as well as legislation aimed at protecting biodiversity and wildlife, are among the strategies that aim to assist the country to consume less carbon.
The North African country’s efforts to clean energy will not only benefit local people but also its neighboring countries.
Morocco is positioning itself as a clean energy hub with the potential to export renewable power to Europe, and already has two electricity cables connecting it to Spain and plans for a subsea connection to the UK.
