Renewable energy development is an important part of Morocco’s national energy policy, which aims to diversify energy supply sources by increasing the share of green energy to 52% of total installed electrical power by 2030. Given the country’s significant renewable energy potential in the form of solar and wind, the development of a diversified energy mix in favor of renewable energy is planned to meet the growing demand for electricity, preserve the environment and reduce the country’s energy dependence.
To support the development of the renewable energy sector, Moroccan authorities have established the law n° 13-09 relating to renewable energies. Planned to work in synergy with national energy policy, the law acts to develop and adjust the renewable energy sector to future technological evolutions and to promote private initiatives.
The study launched by Casa Transports and awarded to ACS falls within this framework and consists of a technical and financial feasibility study for the installation of photovoltaic power plants to supply the lines and maintenance centers of the Tramway and Bus Rapid Transit systems in Casablanca.
