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

Spanning across 1,160 acres, the project was completed for Arlington Valley Solar Energy II (AVSE II), a member of LS Power Group, following two years of engineering, procurement and construction work.

Equipped with 600,000 PV panels from Kyocera and Hyundai, the project will sell its output to San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) under a long-term power purchase agreement.

The company had commissioned the first 19MW power block at the project and commenced initial delivery of electricity to the customer SDG&E in May 2013.

The project also features 115kV and 500kV switchyards and 115kV and 500kV gen-tie electric lines to interconnect the generation facility to the existing Hassayampa 500kV switchyard and the electric transmission grid.

Initially, Fluor had received an EPC contract in October 2011, and later received a follow-on order to provide operations and maintenance services for the facility for an additional five-year period. The company’s engineers in the Irvine, California office designed the facility.

"The project will sell its output to San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) under a long-term power purchase agreement."

Fluor Power business senior vice-president Matt McSorley said the project was completed with the close cooperation between LS Power, the project stakeholders and Fluor’s project execution team.

"We’re proud of the hard work of our engineering and construction teams, and we look forward to providing operations and maintenance services at the AVSE II facility," McSorley said.

Prudential Capital Group and a bank group led by Banco Santander completed financing for the $550m project in February 2012, while GE Energy Financial Services is participating in the project as an equity partner.

In May 2011, the company received a special use permit from Maricopa County for the project, which will directly convert sunlight to electricity.
