The largest solar park in the world
The 35% of Morocco energy comes from renewable sources thanks to energy sites such as Noor-Ouarzazate solar power plant. Morocco is on the right track to reach its goal of increasing the share of renewable energies in its energy mix to 42% on the horizon of 2020.
Morocco has set itself one of the world’s most ambitious energy targets, to increase the share of renewable sources to 42% of its energy mix by 2020. Morocco hosts the largest solar park in the world; built on an area of more than 3,000 hectares, the Noor-Ouarzazate complex produces enough electricity to power a city of the size of Prague, or twice as much as Marrakech. Located at the gateway of the Sahara Desert, the complex produces 580 megawatts, saving the planet from over 760,000 tons of carbon emissions.
