Delve into the renewable energy prospects for Morocco

In its new low greenhouse gas (GHG) emission strategy to 2050, submitted to the United Nations (UN), the Ministry of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development (MEM) of Morocco suggested to raise the share of renewable capacity in the country’s total power installed capacity mix to 80%.   Morocco currently aims to increase the share of renewables in total power capacity to 52% by 2030. The new strategy plans to increase the share of renewable capacity to 70% by 2040 and 80% by 2050.  GlobalData’s expert analysis delves into the current state and potential growth of the renewable energy market in Morocco.

Developed by ESCO Pacific, the partnership will provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services and supply solar modules for the solar farm.

The Australian solar farm will be built on nearly 1,000 acres of grazing, crop and irrigated lands near Finley.

For this solar plant, Canadian Solar will be supplying more than 490,000 of 1500V KuMax modules (CS3U-P), which will be installed on single-axis solar tracking systems.

Canadian Solar chairman and CEO Dr Shawn Qu said: “We are delighted to be selected by ESCO Pacific to provide EPC services together with Signal Energy, and to supply our 1500V crystalline module to this large-scale solar power plant.

“This partnership further expands our presence and solidifies our competitive position in Australia. We are committed to providing customers in Australia and around the world with access to clean, affordable and reliable solar energy.”

"We are committed to providing customers in Australia and around the world with access to clean, affordable and reliable solar energy."

Upon completion, the solar plant will generate enough clean energy that will be sufficient to power more than 90,000 NSW homes, while displacing over 400,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.

Construction works at the site have already begun and is expected to be completed by October this year.

Signal Energy president Greg Pawson said: “We are excited about establishing ourselves in the Australian renewable energy market.

“Signal Energy has had great success in the US by creating value for our customers through optimisation and execution of their solar projects, and leveraging our experience internationally has proven to make a lot of sense.

“The Australian market has been very receptive to our arrival, and we appreciate the confidence that ESCO Pacific has placed in Signal Energy Australia.”
