The 2009 National Energy Strategy set out an ambition for 42% of the total installed power capacity to come from renewable energy in 2020. This was expected to require the commissioning of new plants to bring the total capacity to 2000 MW of solar, 2000 MW of wind and 2000 MW of hydro by 2020.
In 2015, during the 21st session of the UNFCCC’s Conference of the Parties (COP21), Morocco announced a further planned increase in the renewables capacity to reach 52% of the total by 2030 (20% solar, 20% wind, 12% hydro). To meet the 2030 target, the country aims to add around 10 GW of RE capacities between 2018 and 2030, consisting of 4560 MW of solar, 4200 MW of wind, and 1330 MW of hydropower capacity5.
