The international fair for renewable energies and energy efficiency!

Organized by FENELEC the 10th edition of the international exhibition of renewable energies brings together for the first time, all the professional operators of renewable energies and energy efficiency at the Mohammed VI exhibition center in EL JADIDA from 02 to 05 November 2022.

This edition confirms its status as a platform for innovation and exchange with the participation of 10,000 professionals from the sector.

Exhibitors and visitors will be present for a scientific and technical animation program throughout the event.

Renewable energy for development!

Morocco has established a reputation as a climate leader. Renewable energy accounts for about two-fifths of the country's electricity generation capacity, some fossil fuel subsidies have been phased out, and the country is home to some of the world's largest clean energy projects. The country has been praised for its efforts to reduce carbon emissions.

Moroccan main energy reserves, such as oil, natural gas, and coal, have historically been limited (huge shale gas potential reserves are expected). This country used to be energy-dependent, importing 91 percent of its entire energy supply from its border neighbors in 2014 (4). Furthermore, in 2009, the bill was $10 billion.

Morocco has sat an ambitious renewable development target to decrease its energy dependency as the energy mix of this emerging country was, up to now, mainly based on imported oil.

Thanks to its several initiatives, Morocco is ranked seventh in the world in the 2016 Climate Change Performance Index and is the only non-European country in the top 20. It's also one of only five countries to have achieved a "sufficient" rating for its efforts to keep warming below 2°C in the Climate Action Tracker.

Morocco is endowed with real privileges, in particular due to its position at the heart of an energy crossroads. It aspires to focus on research and development of renewable, clean and environmentally friendly energies in order to make the most of its strengths.

Indeed, the Kingdom has significant potential in renewable energies, particularly for solar and wind power, in particular in the coastal areas which relate to 3,500 km.

Solar: A solar potential illustrated by 3000 hours of sunshine per year and 5 KWh / m2 / day of irradiation.

Wind: A wind potential estimated at 25 000 MW including nearly 6000 MW are achievable by 2030.

Small Hydraulic: Significant potential for micro hydraulic power plants: more than 200 usable sites.

Biomass: 9 million hectares of forests.

Highly developed transit energy infrastructure.

Noor Solar Power

Noor Power Plant in Morocco is the world’s largest concentrated solar power plant project. Situated in the municipality of Ouarzazate in the Agadir district of Morocco, the Noor plants are located in a very favorable region with one of the highest amounts of sunlight in the world – 2635 kWh/m2/year.

Morocco has launched the Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN) in 2010 to accelerate the deployment of solar projects. An ambitious goal of installing 2000 MW by 2020 (33) including CSP (concentrated solar power) and PV projects has been announced by the government.

Morocco announced an ambitious energy plan in 2009, aiming for renewable energy to account for 42 percent of total installed power capacity by 2020. Solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity increased 16-fold (although from a low base) and wind capacity increased six-fold by 2020, thanks to the strategy. Morocco also constructed the Noor-Ouarzazate complex, the world's largest concentrated solar power plant, which consists of a massive array of curved mirrors spanning 3,000 hectares (11.6 square miles) that concentrate the Sun's rays into tubes of hot liquid, which is then used to generate electricity.

Morocco sources around %40 of its electricity from coal

Morocco wants renewables to account for 52 percent of its total power capacity by 2030, up from 37 percent presently.

Wind Projects

With 3,000 km of coast line and high average wind speeds (7.5-9.5 m/s in the south and 9.5-11 m/s in the north), wind power is one of the most promising sectors for renewable energy generation in Morocco. Taking into account this vast potential, the Moroccan government decided to raise the wind energy capacity from the current 124 MW to 1,000 MW by 2012. Between 2008 and 2010, the Moroccan government is planning to add 600 MW of installed wind energy capacity near the towns of Tetouan, Tarfaya and Taza.

As part of its objective of producing 52% of its electricity from green energy by 2030, Morocco sets a target of 2 gigawatts for its wind component. The 10 projects already started or being installed will total around 1 GW which represents more than 50% of the total production target.

 Morocco will mobilise around MAD 14.5 billion (USD 1.59bn/EUR 1.38bn) of global investment to finance a 1,000-MW integrated wind energy programme.The capital is meant for wind parks located across the kingdom which will be fully commissioned by 2024. 

Morocco has already put into operation more than 4,000 MW of renewable energy and the share of green electricity has reached 37% of the energy mix. The North African country seeks to raise the share of renewables to 52% by 2030.

As of 2020, Morocco had an installed wind power capacity of 1400 MW. As of 2013, there was an installed capacity of 947 MW and 500 MW are under construction.
