Energy sovereignty: where does Morocco stand?

energy transition in morocco: progress report

In the series of morning conferences organised by the Le Matin group, this edition of 1 July 2022, held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Casablanca, addresses the theme of Morocco’s energy sovereignty, in order to take stock of the situation through five main themes: evolution of the energy mix, obstacles to the development of clean energies, stagnation of hydroelectricity, potential and strategies around natural gas, and volatility of fuels

Souveraineté énergétique: où en est le Maroc ?

During this conference, several lines of thought are approached:

  • What is the current status of the energy transition strategy in Morocco, given that the target for the energy mix from renewable sources is 52%?
  • What are the obstacles to the development of clean energy in Morocco and what are the means to overcome them?
  • Hydroelectricity is not progressing in the Kingdom: why?
  • Natural gas: discoveries, production, pipelines, supply… what potential and what strategy for this clean resource complementary to renewable energy?
  • Fuels: price volatility, supply disruptions, security stock, etc… how to control an increasingly unstable sector?

To lead the reflection around this event, Mr. Rachid HALLAOUY, moderator, will welcome panelists experts in renewable energies:

  • Mr Mohamed BENYAHIA, Secretary General of the Ministry of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development,
  • Mr. Saïd Mouline, Director General of the Moroccan Agency for Energy Efficiency (AMEE),
  • Mr. Mohammed BOURAMTANE, Director of the Development Division at ONEE.


Mr Thierry POITOUT, General Manager of SOLAREXPORT MAROC, accompanied by Mr Rayan MARGAOUI, Director of Development and Partnerships, attended this new conference with great interest.

Indeed, the innovative SOLAREXPORT MOROCCO project is in line with Moroccan energy sovereignty, where the issues of competitiveness, productivity and quality are paramount.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank once again the Le Matin group, and its head Mr Mohammed Haitami, for their real involvement in this news which concerns us all, and we congratulate them here for the quality of their actions.


Located in the industrial zone of Sidi Bouathmane, near Marrakech, the company’s ambition is to participate in the development of a local sourcing and industry in the renewable energy sector, by proposing an industrial manufacturing unit of photovoltaic modules Made In Morocco “MAPower” with an annual projection of 300 MW, as well as assembly structures.

The SOLAR EXPORT MAROC project is supported by the Moroccan government via its Ministry of Industry, Trade, Green and Digital Economy, as well as by Marrakech Invest (the Regional Investment Centre of Marrakech-Safi).
A partnership with IRESEN and the Green Energy Park has also been concluded in order to provide a permanent innovation approach through R&D and training.

Thus, by providing an efficient and 100% Moroccan solution, SOLAR EXPORT MAROC actively participates in the development of Morocco’s industrial sovereignty and will very soon offer the Moroccan market photovoltaic modules manufactured in Morocco and which will no longer need to be imported.
