  • Seeking energy independence

    08-Jan-2017 by: Robert Jones

    Morocco’s focus on concentrated solar power has bucked the trend of many countries, which have pushed ahead with photovoltaic schemes. Morocco is the second largest oil and gas importer in Africa and has few hydrocarbon reserves it can turn to meet its rising energy needs. Its population stands at about 33.5 million and is projected by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to reach 35.1 million by the end of 2020. To meet increasing electricity demand, the country has been active in pushing ahead with renewable energy projects.

  • Private sector investors are showing new interest in Saudi Arabia’s solar energy market, after the nation’s leadership included plans to add 9.5 GW of renewables to the energy supply as part of Saudi Vision 2030, along with opening the way to greater private sector and international investment. Announced in April, the Vision 2030 strategy sets 9.5 GW as an ‘initial target’ to help build the renewables sector, noting that energy consumption will triple in the next 14 years. The Saudi government has since confirmed that it aims to achieve that target by 2023, a rapid increase from the nation’s 25 MW of installed renewable energy capacity at the end of 2015.
