Developing a financing program for solar projects in the industrial sector for submission to the GCF

4C Maroc aims to provide technical assistance and support Morocco’s efforts to meet international climate challenges through the implementation and monitoring of its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and the strengthening of South-South cooperation through a program supported by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Within this framework ACS was tasked to develop a financing program for solar photovoltaic (PV) projects in the industrial sector and to expand the related concept note for submission to the Green Climate Fund.

This project supports the Moroccan government’s efforts to achieve its renewable energy targets (1,500 MWp by 2030 as a conditional action in its NDC) by enabling solar PV project developers to access necessary financing.
