Twelve years after the implementation of an energy strategy by Morocco, the reliability of the strategy is still being questioned. This, proposed in 2009, was based on the implementation of measures to boost solar energy in the country, something that was first seen on the horizon for 2020, but then moved to 2030. Even so, many experts still do not see it clearly and we at CMIM, as experts on export certification to Moroccoare not clear either.
Their objectives were as follows:
- Promote energy efficiency.
- Mobilize national energy resources, especially the great potential of renewable energies.
- Ensure security of supply.
- Generalize access to energy at optimized prices.
- Integration of Morocco into the regional energy system.
- Implement measures to preserve the environment in all energy activities.
All summed up and set out in perfectly measured plans to implement it and increase the share of renewable energy to 42% or, on the other hand, to reduce energy consumption by 15% by 2030.
And 2020 saw these targets remain unmet and none of the targets that had been set had been achieved. There had been no progress in solar energy, which was one of the strong focuses on which the Moroccan government relied.
However, in 2022, Morocco continues with the aim of even increasing it to reach 50% by 2030 and 100% renewable energy by 2050. It mixes three types of energy: wind, water and solar energy, with most of it going to the latter.
A very ambitious bet that we will wait a few years to see if it is finally fulfilled or not by this country.
