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.

The three projects will be developed in Cement City, Pullman and Letts Creek and are scheduled to come online by the middle of next year.

AES Clean Energy chief operating officer Mike Belikoff said: “Throughout the bidding process, Borrego was flexible and transparent, and they proactively identified concerns, enabling us to resolve issues before signing contracts.

“We look forward to working with Borrego to safely bring these impactful projects to life, bringing substantial benefits to the local communities while helping Consumers Energy and the S tate of Michigan reach their renewable energy goals.”

With 72MW DC cumulative capacity, the three solar farms will be equipped with bifacial solar modules on single-axis trackers.

Upon completion, AES will own and operate the facilities.

Together, they will have the capacity to generate nearly 104,500MWh of electricity annually that will be sufficient to power more than 9,000 Michigan households while displacing 74,057mt of carbon emissions from fossil fuel sources.

Clean energy generated by the plants will be delivered to Consumers Energy as part of a long-term power purchase agreement.

Borrego utility-scale engineering, procurement and construction division general manager Brian Barker said: “The Michigan projects represent the latest success in Borrego’s growth story.

“Our ongoing working relationship with AES is based on trust and transparency, and is an example of our focus on powering our customers’ growth.”

Recently, Borrego secured contracts to build large-scale solar and energy storage plants in Maine, Montana, S outh Dakota, New York and other states.
