Morocco is moving through with its defined energy diversification plan, including an ambitious hydrogen project that aims to provide 4% of global supply locally.
Hydrogen will be employed in Morocco’s aim to boost the share of renewable energy in overall energy consumption, according to a government note.
Morocco has established a goal of producing 52 percent of its electricity from renewable sources, mostly solar and wind power, and has made significant investments in these renewable energy sources.
Morocco wants to develop essential technologies, build industrial clusters, and boost hydrogen-related infrastructure to reach its hydrogen supply objective, according to the government.
Morocco increased its objective for reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 45 percent by 2030 as part of the Paris Agreement Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).
According to the energy ministry, the target will be met by implementing 61 mitigation projects in the domains of energy, industry, housing, transportation, garbage, agriculture, and forests.
According to the government, the total cost of these projects is 38.8 billion dollars.
In addition, the industrial fabric is shifting toward low-carbon production, particularly in the critical automotive and aeronautics industries.
