Morocco Committed to Energy Policy Addressing Climate Change, German Expert
Rabat – Morocco has committed to an energy transition policy, reconciling economic development and the fight against climate change, said, Monday in Rabat, chief technical adviser of the project supporting energy policy in Morocco (PAPEM), Gunnar Lorenz.
The Moroccan energy market is showing growing momentum and is increasingly opening up to private investments, notably in terms of renewable energy and energy efficiency, underlined the German expert during a conference organized by the ministry of Energy, Mining and Sustainable Development, in partnership with the German Agency for International Cooperation (GTZ).
This project, financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, aims at improving the legal and institutional context needed for the development of energy markets in the long run, the expert said, adding that PAPEM will allow for the development of energy scenarios, the opening of a low-voltage network, the strengthening of the energy market’s regulation, and the improvement of energy efficiency.
This conference was an opportunity to present the challenges facing energy markets, after the development of sustainable policies in the fields of the environment, accessibility and security, as well as the experiences of several European countries in this area.
This event also made it possible to create a platform for exchange and international experience sharing, as a source of inspiration for key actors, experts and academics in the energy sector.
