Rabat — The Moroccan plan for the development of renewable energies seeks to reduce by 20% energy consumption by 2030, said minister of Energy, Mining and Environment, Aziz Rabbah.

The minister, who recently took part in the first virtual meeting of the Energy Transition Council, launched by the United Kingdom as part of its presidency of COP26, noted that the national plan for the development of renewable energies also aims to exceed 52 % of installed electrical power from renewable sources, according to a statement issued by the ministry of Energy.

Upon the High Guidelines of HM King Mohammed VI, Morocco has been engaged in the process of energy transition since 2009 to develop renewable energies and energy efficiency while strengthening regional integration, said Rabbah, who participated in the high-level session of a meeting on clean energy in Africa.

According to the minister, the objective is to optimize the Moroccan electricity mix around reliable and competitive technological choices, by combining the different technologies available in the field of renewable energies.

Rabbah called for exploring opportunities for cooperation and strengthening North-South cooperation, particularly in the areas of clean energy technologies, development of policy and regulatory frameworks to encourage investment, increase energy efficiency and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, while harnessing centralized and decentralized clean energy solutions to achieve universal access to sustainable and modern energy by 2030.
