To reach its renewable energy goals, Morocco has started to introduce a modern legal and regulatory framework for the energy sector. In early 2010, relevant legislation and regulations were defined. Among these, the following laws should be noted:The Renewable Energy Law (13.09 of February 11, 2010) aims at fostering and promoting renewable energy and regulates the commercialization and exportation of renewable energy. Furthermore, it outlines a procedure for the authorization of renewable energy installations.The law for the creation of the National Agency for the Promotion of Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation (ADEREE) (16.09 of January 13, 2010) defined the reorganization and renaming of the existing Centre for the Development of Renewable Energy (CDER).The law for the creation of the Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN) (57.09 of January 14, 2010), which is the prime contractor for solar power projects..To meet growing electricity demand, Morocco plans to invest more than $20 billion in the next 10 years to increase the installed capacity by about 6,750 MW (installed capacity was 6,100 MW at the end of 2009).5 The program envisions a radical increase in renewables, so that by 2020, wind, solar and hydro would each account for 14% of power supply, with the remaining sources oil (14%), gas (11%), nuclear (7%), and coal (26%). The $10 billion solar program is based on construction of a 500 MW CSP plant by 2015 and another 2,000 MW of CSP during 2015-2020.This ambitious plan is in line with the new energy strategy that was declared in March 2009 and aims at: (i) diversifying the energy mix around reliable and competitive energy technologies, in order to reduce the share of oil to 40% by 2030; (ii) developing the national renewable energy potential, with the objectives of increasing the contribution of renewable to 10-15% of primary energy demand by 2012; (iii) making energy efficiency improvements a national priority; (iv) developing indigenous energy resources by intensifying hydrocarbon exploration activities and developing conventional and non-conventional oil sources; and (v) integrating into the regional energy market, through enhanced cooperation and trade with both other Maghreb countries and the EU countries.The Moroccan Integrated Solar Energy Project & the Wind Energy ProgrammeThe Moroccan government launched two major RE projects in 2009 and 2010: the Moroccan Integrated Solar Energy Project and the Integrated Wind Project.The Moroccan Integrated Solar Project aims at achieving an installed capacity of 2,000 MW by 2019 on five sites, and annual production of 4,500 GWh (18% of current national production). The investment costs for the project amounts to US$9 billion, however the project would lead to savings of 1 million Toe and 3.7 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. The first solar plant, the Ouarzazate CSP plant, is planned to be in service in 2015. In 2013, MASEN announced the group selected to implement the first phase with an initial capacity of 500 MW. Photovoltaic modules and CSP towers are to be used in later stages. The complex will be among the largest CSP plants in the world. The group is led by the Saudi International Company for Water and Power (Acwa), with 95% ownership. The value of the contract is $1 billion. Financing will be found through loans from the World Bank, the African Development Bank, The European Investment bank, the EU, The German KfW bank, and other. In January 2013, bids were invited for the second phase, consisting of two CSP plants with total capacity of 300 MW.The Wind Energy Programme aims at installing a capacity of 2,000 MW with annual production of 6,600 GWH (26% of current national production) by 2020. Five sites have been identified. The first wind farm will be operational in 2014. Investment costs are estimated at US$3.5 billion. This project is expected to produce annual savings of 1.5 Toe and 5.6 million tonnes of CO2. Already, 100 MW is completed (286 MW) or being developed (714 MW).The EnergiPro ProjectEnergiPro was launched by ONE and pursuant to which large industrial consumers are offered an incentive in the form of favourable tariffs to invest in renewables.EnergiPro was launched in 2006 to promote independent production of electricity from renewable sources, and offers two key benefits:transmission of electricity produced from renewable energy throughout the grid network at fixed rateguaranteed repurchase by the ONE of any surplus electricity produced with a twenty per cent bonus on top of ONE peak, and off-peak day ahead tariffsSeveral major firms have entered into “Energie Pro” agreements. Whilst, EnergiePro is not limited to wind energy, the program is primarily directed at this source.
