As part of its strategy towards energy use, Morocco gives priority to developing renewable energy and sustainable development.
Morocco offers a wide range of investment opportunities in the sector of thermal and photovoltaic solar energy, including the launch of the following structuring programs:
- The Moroccan Project of Solar Energy: This program will increase by 14% the role of solar energy in total electricity capacity by 2020 and prevent the emission of 3.7 million tonnes of CO ² per year.
- Development Program of the Moroccan market for solar water heaters (PROMASOL): This program will avoid the emission of 920,000 tons of CO2 per year and create 920 permanent jobs.
Both plans were designed to fall under the criteria of a Clean Development Mechanism.
