Accompagnement du plan solaire marocain


Titre : Accompagnement du plan solaire marocain

Beratung Solarplan Marokko

Pays : Morocco

Numéro du projet : 2010.2267.2

Durée : 2011 – 2014

Commissioned by : German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

Agence d’exécution : Ministère de l’Energie, des Mines, de l’Eau et de l’Environnement (MEMEE) Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN)

The Moroccan Government presented an ambitious solar project of its own in November 2009 (Projet intégré de production d’électricité solaire) with the aim of producing energy sustainably by 2020 in five locations using concentrated solar technologies and photovoltaic systems with a total installed output of 2000 megawatts. The pilot project, with an output of 500 megawatts, is to go into operation in Ouarzazate by 2015. The first tranche, for 160 megawatts and three hours of thermal energy storage using parabolic trough technology, has already been awarded to an international consortium. Construction is likely to start in early 2013.

The Moroccan Government intends to achieve increased independence from energy imports and also to have a positive effect on the labour market situation in the solar technologies sector through the programme as part of the country’s sustainable development. Its declared objective is to establish an industrial infrastructure for these technologies so that over time, Moroccan companies will also be involved in constructing power stations. These measures are accompanied by training measures and by Moroccan research focusing on industry-orientated, applied research.

Project implementation will take place through the Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN), which was established by legislation in March 2010.

Companies, applied research and initial and further training are better integrated into cross-departmental policy and practice to promote the solar sector in Morocco.

Financement : 3 000 000 Euro
