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.

Owned by First Solar’s contracted generation arm, the 72MW facility is spread across 630 acres of land in Beaufort County, South Carolina. Construction works on Seabrook Solar has already been initiated.

Dominion Energy Electric Operations president Keller Kissam said: “South Carolina, through the General Assembly and Governor McMaster, has expressed an interest in the benefits of renewable energy.

“Dominion Energy South Carolina already has 500MW of utility-scale solar projects that are operating in our service area. We are excited to add to our supply of low-cost, clean energy with this post-merger solar project in South Carolina.

“We look forward to continuing our work with developers to collaboratively and cost-effectively create a lower-carbon future for our state.”

Seabrook Solar is expected to commence its commercial operations later in 2019 and supply clean energy to Dominion Energy South Carolina. The two companies have not disclosed financial details of the deal.

Dominion Energy South Carolina serves 739,000 electric customers in the Midlands and Low Country. It also serves 384,000 natural gas customer accounts primarily in the Midlands, Low Country and Pee Dee.

Recently, the Commonwealth of Virginia signed a 420MW renewable energy contract with Dominion Energy.

Dominion Energy will supply clean energy from the renewable sources, which will be used to power state-owned buildings, facilities and universities in Virginia.

The agreement ensures that 30% of electricity consumed by the state-owned facilities by 2022 would be from renewable energy sources, fulfilling Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s goal that was set in Executive Order 43 in September 2019.
