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. We cover:

Located in the municipalities of Tlaxco and Hueyotlipan, Magdalena II is built with an investment of nearly $165m and features nearly 550,000 bifacial modules.

Enel Green Power CEO Antonio Cammisecra said: “Magdalena II supplies emission-free energy to the State of Tlaxcala and to companies that are looking for more sustainable energy options, underscoring our dedication to renewable energy and decarbonisation in line with our global commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

“Construction of the facility also successfully implemented our sustainability approach, as made evident by the multiple initiatives we carried out to support local value creation as well as the rational use of resources.

“All of the above actions are in line with our permanent commitment to maximise stakeholder value through our operations as well as contributing to the sustainable development of Mexico’s electricity system.”

Magdalena II is expected to generate approximately 640GWh of energy per year, and offset about 350,000 tonnes of carbon emissions into the atmosphere.

It will be the company’s first energy project in Mexico, where all the clean energy generated by the solar facility will be sold in the country’s wholesale electricity market to private off-takers.

With the completion of Magdalena II, EGPM currently has more than 2,300MW capacity, which includes 977MW of wind, 1,308MW of solar and 53MW of hydropower.

The company is also close to completing a further 593MW in wind projects, including Amistad II, III and IV, all of which are located in the state of Coahuila.
