Launched in 2009, under the presidency of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, the Moroccan Solar Plan is a very ambitious project. This project is part of Morocco’s energy strategy, which focuses on the development of renewable energy and sustainable development.
The realization of the Moroccan Solar Plan is provided on five sites: Ouarzazate, Ain Bni Mathar, Foum Al Oued, Boujdour and Sebkhat Tah.
The completion of this project will reduce the energy dependence of Morocco and save fuel. It will also protect the environment by limiting emissions of greenhouse gases.
In addition, the project includes training, technical expertise, research and development, the promotion of an integrated solar industry and potentially the desalination of sea water
The implementation of the Moroccan Solar Plan is entrusted to the Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy).
