Energy is a strategic factor for economic development. Morocco is still largely dependent on energy imports, more than 90%. To reduce its energy dependence, in 2009, Morocco adopted a strategy to increase the share of renewable energies in the installed electrical power to 52% in 2030. Its strategic location allows Morocco to be an electrical hub between Europe and Africa.
Achieving energy security is considered the top priority for Morocco, especially in the current situation characterized by the high price of petroleum products at the global level, and its impact on the national energy bill following the war between Russia and Ukraine.
