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: 
  • The 2020 target compared to what was achieved

The two companies will work together to develop concrete foundations for floating offshore wind in Japan.

Ideol will make use of its Damping Pool technology for the development. The patented technology helps ensure the floating wind turbine’s stability and performance under harsh conditions.

Construction of floating offshore wind in Japan is claimed to have a three times higher potential in comparison to the bottom-fixed offshore wind farms.

Under the new MoU, Ideol and Taisei intend to closely cooperate and make use of their expertise and resources to develop concrete foundations.

Additionally, the partnership will be able to offer floating foundations at lower costs in the country because of the use of concrete. This will benefit both parties as it contributes to fast-track their growth in the domestic floating offshore wind market.

Taisei is a general contractor associated with marine construction including concrete barges. Established in 2010, Ideol has been involved in several floating offshore wind projects from conception to installation.

In partnership with Atlantique Offshore Energy, Ideol is developing a Damping Pool concept based universal floating substation that will be suitable for 40m deep bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind farms.
