Abstract

Morocco imports 96% of its energy, threatening its energy security. To combat this, 2,000 MW each of solar, wind, and hydroelectric power are planned. Energy conservation efforts have been initiated with mixed success. This report outlines Morocco’s energy strategy, evaluating its successes and failures. Recommendations were made to reduce energy use, implement local-scale projects, pursue global collaboration, and promote research and development in renewable technology. This report will guide Ribat Al Fath in influencing Moroccan energy policy.
