Morocco’s Policy to Support Renewable Energy, a ‘Model’ for African Countries (Center on Global Energy Policy)
Washington 20/10/2016 (MAP) – The policy adopted by Morocco to support renewable energy is a “model” for other countries, particularly in Africa, said the U.S. Center on Global Energy Policy (GPEC) at Columbia University.
In a radio program, published on its website, the New York-based Center noted that Morocco is a model for other countries, particularly in Africa in order to integrate renewable energy into their policies and development strategies.
Morocco, which has made “enormous” progress in the field of green energy since 2009, has set “ambitious” targets in terms of clean energy, said radio presenter Bill Loveless.
He added that an increasing number of foreign companies are interested more and more in the energy sector in Morocco, a country that is developing its own industry with the support of several partners.
Referring to the 22nd Conference of Parties (COP22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, slated for November 7-18 in Marrakech, Loveless said that this important event will take place in a country that has made renewable energy and energy efficiency the cornerstone of its strategy and policy in this field.
