Énergie solaire au Maroc : vers un leadership régional ?

Maria-Eugenia Sanin (University of Evry-Val d’Essonne)



Morocco aims to increase its share of renewables to 52% of the electricity mix, targeting an installed capacity of 2,500 MWp of residential solar by 2030. In this paper, we explore possible strategies for the development of solar in Morocco, from the perspective of a solar hub. We propose a definition of this notion of ‘‘hub’’, with an international focus, and present the different forms it could take. We assess Morocco’s maturity with respect to the long-term objective of becoming a ‘‘global hub’’ and propose a typology of possible trajectories.
